Pa. Boys: Tues. Pa. boys: C.R. North edges Tennent

Posted: April 03, 2014

Brandon McIlwain is one of the area's most highly recruited athletes because of what he does with his arms and legs. Tuesday, all he had to do to make a difference was stand still.

McIlwain, a sophomore, drove in the winning run on a bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning to give Council Rock North a 3-2 victory over William Tennent.

McIlwain, a highly touted quarterback, has recently received scholarship offers from Penn State, Florida, Auburn, and Ohio State, among others.

Matt Hand allowed four hits in six innings for host Council Rock North and earned a no-decision.

Suburban One American. Matt Cooper lined a single to right field to score Zach Metz with the winning run in the ninth inning of a 2-1 defeat of visiting Upper Moreland.

Ches-Mont National. Kyle Ajjan's RBI single in the fifth inning was the difference as Downingtown East topped visiting Avon Grove, 2-1. Ajjan's hit scored Ryan Taylor, who had walked and stolen second. Eric Sigovich allowed three hits, struck out six, and needed just 85 pitches for a complete-game win.

Central. Corey Neel allowed five hits over seven innings, and host Harriton blanked Strath Haven, 4-0. Joe D'Angelo went 3 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI. Andre Pendleton and Jimmy Bredt each knocked in a run.

Catholic Red. John Banes went 4 for 5 with two RBIs to power Cardinal O'Hara to an 11-3 victory at Archbishop Ryan.

Jim Herron doubled twice and drove in three runs as La Salle thumped host Father Judge, 14-3. Nick Vermo was 4 for 4.

Catholic Blue. Josh Ockimey had two hits, walked twice, and scored four runs as Neumann-Goretti rolled past visiting West Catholic, 15-0.

Friends Schools. Gabriel Ortiz and Peter Ryan combined on a no-hitter as George School won at Germantown Friends, 2-0. Ortiz threw the first four innings and earned the win. Brenden Kinnell went 3 for 3 and drove in a run. Aiden Greer had two hits and scored twice.

Nick Duval's single in the seventh inning scored Sam Feinberg with the go-ahead run in Friends Select's 8-7 win at Academy of the New Church.

Nonleague. Ben McDonald was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh inning, and Ryan McCole came home with the winning run in Bishop Shanahan's 6-5 defeat of visiting West Chester Rustin.
