Warwick Walk Off HR Win

Going to the bottom of the seventh inning Monday afternoon, the Warwick baseball team wasn’t exactly in a great position.

In fact, the District Three champion Warriors trailed District One fifth seed Hatboro Horsham by four runs in their PIAA Class 6A first-round meeting in Lititz.

Nope, not at all ideal.

But Matthew Williams and Nick Slogik had opinions on the matter.

Williams proceeded to rip a bases-loaded two-run double to trim the deficit. Not to be outdone, teammate Slogik stepped in and, with two outs, drilled the first pitch he saw for a three-run homer.

Walkoff 8-7 victory for Warwick. And a berth in the state quarterfinals on Thursday.

The Warriors (20-2) will next meet Upper St. Clair (13-10), the second seed out of District Seven, which knocked off District Six champ Altoona 2-0 on Monday.

Sites and times for the next round of state play have not yet been announced.
