Chivily had two hits and Natalie Wertz had a hit, stolen base and a run scored.
Sophomore Max Vasile gave up just two hits and struck out seven as the Hillbillies baseball team defeated Sussex Tech 2-0 yesterday at Doc Goeltz Field. Luke Sniatkowski had the go ahead RBI on a sacrifice fly that brought in pinch runner Tommy DeNicola (who was running for Chris Ohweiler) to go in front 1-0. Nick Looney singled in the second run. Vasile finished Tech out in the seventh as the 12-8 Hillbillies moved on to the next round against #1 seeded Pompton Lakes, which just squeaked by the #16 seed Saddle Brook 4-1. The game will be played Friday at Pompton Lakes High School.
