FALL SPECTACULAR RESULTS
The Shock traveled to Shippensburg, PA this weekend on the heels of a tournament victory last weekend in Germantown, MD. The Saturday schedule doesn't come much tougher, the girls were scheduled for 4 games in a row starting at 9:30am. After a long, frustrating day the players managed to come away with an 0-2-2 record. Which wasn't bad considering the team was the only 16U team at the event playing against 18U teams.
Saturday did have one highlight, Kara Butler smashed 3HRs in her SHOCK debut. The team just needed a little boost for Sunday, which came to the hotel on Saturday night. Sam Emert and Courtney Lear made the trip after their volleyball tournament and it seemed to spark the team. Look out Sunday, here they come!
Whoever the Shock played Sunday morning wasn't going to stand a chance. It was the Lady Braves. The Shock put a 9-1 win under their belts, led by the bat of Tori Parlock who hit for the cycle along with 3RBI, and Breanne Wallace who hit her 1st HR of the season. Liz Newhouse and Sam Emert shared pitching duties and held the Braves to 2 hits.
In game 2 against the PA Alley Cats ,the Shock busted out to a 2-0 lead in the 1st inning on RBI singles from Newhouse and Butler, the lead held until the 5th when the Cats scored 2 of their own to tie the game. In the top of the 7th, Jill Penatzer, Parlock and Newhouse loaded the bases with no outs, Butler hit a long fly ball to centerfield which looked to be going out of the park but the fielder made a spectacular catch. The base runners all tagged up then Parlock scored on a wild pitch and Emert hit a Sac fly to give the Shock a 5-2 lead which would be the final score.
The Championship game will become one of the great games in Shock history. The PA Ball Hawks always give the Shock a good game and this one disappoint. The Shock held a 2-1 lead going into the bottom of the 7th only to see the Ball Hawks score a run to tie the game at 2-2. the teams would have to go to extra-innings to decide the Champion. Courtney Lear drove in Nicole Dorn in the top of the 8th to give the Shock a 3-2 lead. The BallHawks matched that with their own run to make the score 3-3 after 8. In the 9th Kara Butler hit a double into the gap scoring Newhouse and giving the Shock the lead once again at 4-3. The Ball Hawks just wouldnt go away, they would get runners at 2nd and 3rd with 1 out, but Sam Emert would get the strike out for out #2 and would end the game on a fly ball to Parlock in right field. Game Over, Shock wins it's 2nd 18U tournament in a row. Congratulations to all the players on a well played tournament.

It looked like the weekend would get wiped out because of the weather, but the rain stayed away and the games were played on Saturday. Sunday was a different story, the rain came in and canceled Sunday's bracket play which meant Saturday's games would determine the winner. With a record of 2-0-1, the SHOCK were declared the champions.

In the final game of the day, the Shock faced the Chesapeake Lady Chargers, an 18U team that has 5 high school seniors that have already committed to play at the college level. The SHOCK was not intimidated at all. The girls took a 4-1 lead to see the visitors come back and take a 5-4 lead, but this team never stops until the game is over, Newhouse tied the game on a passed ball and Emert shut the door on any comeback the Chargers had in mind.
Individual highlights included Dorn's 4 beautiful SAC bunts. Lead-off batter Grace Yanits was on base 6 times out of 10 AB's. Strong defense from ALL the players who only committed 2 errors all day.

After an extremely rough day on Saturday, which resulted in 3 tough losses the Shock responded well with a great Sunday, advancing to the Championship Game in the silver bracket.
The Shock started off the weekend with losses to a great Wyoming Valley Flames team 6-1, Lackawanna Lightning 2-0 and the Hurricanes 2-0. The bats were silent all day with the only hits coming from Nicole Dorn, Morgan Grace, Breanne Wallace and Gaby Wolff. The Shock pitchers did great to keep the team in the games.

Liz Newhouse smashed her 5th HR of the season, Grace Yanits and Breanne Wallace each collected 2 hits, while Sam Emert collected her 3rd win of the season with a solid effort on the mound.

Lackawanna no-hit the Shock on Saturday, that would not happen on Sunday, Sam Johnson would make sure of that crushing her 4th HR of the season and collecting 5 RBI in a 6-1 win. Courney Lear, who was playing defensive only this weekend because of injury, recorded 4 assists and 2 put outs for the game. Megan DeMartino got her 3rd win of the season striking out 8 batters and walking 0.
The win put the Shock in the finals against a solid PA Blast team. The Blast jumped out to a 2-0 lead and held it till the top of the 7th when Johnson led off the inning with a walk and was followed by 3 straight hits from Wallace, Emert and Newhouse to tie the score at 2-2. The comeback was spoiled on a 2out hit to give the Blast the 3-2 win in the bottom of the 7th. Newhouse was strong on the mound striking out 10!
