"This is a serious matter," Cashman said late Tuesday afternoon. "It will not be swept under the rug.
"What happens from here will very much depend on what's in the letter. If we're satisfied that the matter has been handled appropriately, it will be closed. Otherwise we're looking at an appearance by Neumann-Goretti's people at our board meeting [in July]."
By Monday night (the game began at 3 p.m.), Zolk was saying video shot by an N-G parent from the top of the stands near the press box showed two calls made by the plate ump after crucial plays were blatantly wrong. He also thought the outcome of a third call, this one by the base umps after a discussion, had been mishandled.
In these kinds of situations, the PIAA most often wants the school to resolve the matter by, say, suspending the coach for a brief spell at the start of the next season (or perhaps placing him on probation) and banning spectators for a length of time deemed appropriate.
Also Monday night, Zolk said N-G would push the matter, and hoped to get the game replayed.
"That's not happening," Cashman said. "The result stands."
Bob Lombardi - currently Cashman's righthand man, soon to be his successor - said Zolk's comments represented a "breach of the ethics clause in our bylaws. He'll have to explain what he means about getting 'cheated.' "
Zolk declined to comment Tuesday night.
