RCGC Edges Cumberland, Forces Championship Game 2

RCGC Edges Cumberland, Forces Championship Game 2

The Roadrunners of RCGC edged Cumberland by a score of 5-4, forcing one more game for the Region 19 Title.  The Game will be played on Sunday afternoon at Brookdale Community College, starting at 12:00 PM.  In a 2-2 deadlock, RCGC sprung for three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning.  The Dukes put up two runs of their own in the top of the eighth inning, but the rally came up just short.  

Cumberland finds themselves in familiar territory.  Exactly one year ago, the Dukes advanced to the Championship Game without a loss in the Region 19 Final Four.  Then Gloucester, lost their first game, climbed through the loser bracket and took the first championship game from Cumberland setting up the Sunday rematch.  The Dukes broke through, beating the Roadrunners by a score of 11-4 to claim the 2014 Title.  Cumberland will try to match that result tomorrow.
