The 2005 Wildcats: AA Division Champs!


Wednesday, May 18
Comerica Bound!

Field of Dreams?
The Wildcats traveled to a neutral diamond in Madison Heights and defeated Birmingham Brother Rice in a Catholic League A-B semi-final game 2-1 today. With the win, Villanova advances to the league championship game at Comerica Park on Thursday, May 26 at 8:00 pm.

Brother Rice took the lead in the top of the second with on a walk, an error and a double play on a bunt.

The Wildcats roared back in the third inning. Dale Kryway and Bobby Daragon led off the inning with singles. After a pickoff and a strikeout, a promising inning looked squandered. But junior centerfielder Brian Simone hit the first pitch he saw over the 360 foot sign in centerfield for a critical 2-run home run.

That blast proved to be all that the Wildcat pitching staff would need. Junior lefty Karl Guthrie earned the start, pitching 4 strong innings to pick up the victory. Guthrie did not allow a hit, striking out 7 batters while issuing 3 walks. Senior southpaw Steve Teno earned the save with 3 innings of shutout ball, allowing 2 hits and striking out 3.

This game helped the Wildcats earn some measure of revenge against Brother Rice, who had eliminated Villanova in the semi-finals each of the previous two seasons.

At Comerica, the Wildcats will face their division rival, Dearborn Divine Child, who advanced with a 5-2 semi-final win over Redford Catholic Central. The Falcons are two-time defending Catholic League champions, and the defending state Division II champions. The Wildcats and Falcons split their 4 games this year.
