The Northwestern baseball team entered the Colonial League playoffs as the No. 5 seed Monday.
The Tigers (13-9 overall, 11-7 Colonial League) pulled out a pair of wins and are headed to Thursday’s league title game, their third appearance in the league championship in the past three years.
Northwestern plays with pride and never gives up.
Combine those two factors and the sum is one dangerous ball club.
Northwestern softball head coach Josh Zimmerman thought his Lady Tigers would need a near-perfect game to knock off top-seeded Bangor in the Colonial League semifinals.
And for six innings, the Lady Tigers played as close to perfect as he could have asked for But Bangor still had one last inning to work with.
It did not take much time for Northwestern to get on top of Salisbury yesterday afternoon. A three-run first inning put the Tigers out in front where they would stay for good. That quick burst proved to be crucial, as only one other run would be scored during the remaining six innings (one in third by Northwestern) as they defeated the Falcons 4-0 at Northwestern Lehigh High School.

With two weeks remaining in the Colonial League track and field regular season, athletes are still jockeying for seeding position for the May 9-10 league championship meet.
Several Northwestern athletes are among the top of their events.
The following is a list of the top five performers in the league in each event through Friday, April 28. The list also includes the top Northwestern athletes in each event.
First year Northwestern baseball head coach Bob Fatzinger believes he has yet to see his team play to its full potential.
That may be a good thing with Northwestern still above water in the middle of the Colonial League standings and the most important part of its schedule lying ahead.
Northwestern most recently defeated Moravian Academy in convincing fashion, a 13-1 victory to open the week. The win ended a brief two-game skid for the Tigers, but more importantly, Fatzinger is hoping that win can propel his team to bigger and better things.
The Colonial League’s top performer list has some new names among the top of many events. With just two weeks left in the regular season, here’s a look at the top five perormances in each event as athletes begin to jockey for seeding position as the May 9-10 league championship meet approaches.
100: 1. Jonathan Marfisi (PA) 10.5, 2. Michael Creighton (Palis), Jared Colletti (Palis) 10.8, 4. tie Eli Hoyt (B), Marcus Glueck (SL), Eli Hoyt (B), Job Goodman (W) 11.1;
Emily Akelaitis found her comfort zone even before she stepped in the circle.
After Northwestern leadoff hitter Avery George scored the game’s first run in the top of the first inning, the Tigers’ right-handed hurler gained a lot of confidence before throwing her first pitch.
Given the lead, Akelaitis quickly gained control of the game. Her teammates continued to tack on runs, though, making her job a bit easier and the Tigers went on to secure a 12-1 Colonial League victory over rival Northern Lehigh.

The Tigers needed a win badly. While the season is still young, there’s never a good time for a three-game losing streak and last week’s visit to Salisbury was an opportunity to keep that skid from reaching four games.
First-year Northwestern head baseball coach Bob Fatzinger gave the ball to his ace, Mason Vogwill. The senior pitched six solid innings, scattering eight hits while striking out three through six innings as his team posted an 8-3 win.
