The PIAA 6A state finals is set.
Bensalem is scheduled to face-off with Canon-McMillian on Friday on Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, PSU University Park, at 3:30 p.m.
Bensalem is coming of their thrilling 5-4 extra-inning victory over La Salle College High School, whereas Canon McMillan earned the right to play for the title with a 4-1 win over another Bucks County squad, Council Rock North.
Canon McMillian clinched their way to the final game behind excellent pitching from Zach Rohaley who threw six strong innings, allowing only five singles, and walking none.
Rohaley did this while also managing to stay under the 75-pitch limit, allowing him to be eligible to pitch in Friday’s championship.
Also available for The Big Macs is Michigan recruit Cam Weston. Weston is a junior speedballer with his fastball clocking in the low 90’s.
The Owls can counter with three possible arms: Nick Dean, Dom Grady, and Nick Fossile. Dean threw only 40 pitches against La Salle College High School en route to the win.
Unfortunately, due to broadcast restrictions, the game will not be live streamed on the WBCB Sports Network. The championship showdown will however be played on the Pennsylvania News Network.
Best of luck to the Bensalem Owls, and let’s hope they bring home a second state championship to Bucks County in as many years!
