Despite entering last year's Lower Montco American Legion League playoffs as the fourth seed, Cedarbrook won the championship and represented the league in the Region 3 tournament. So neither manager Jordan Prusack nor his players were concerned that the Angels will enter this year's postseason as a fourth-place underdog yet again. They are 10-8-1 entering tonight's game with Horsham (11-7-1), which is 2-0-1 against Cedarbrook and therefore will finish in third place even if the Angels win. The Generals (16-4)

With bandages on his face and his left hand and wrist, Cedarbrook coach Jon Cross looked as if he had gone to battle for his team. And that was even before the Angels stepped on the field against visiting Fort Washington Tuesday night in a key Lower Montco American Legion game. But the real battle hadn't been fought yet. In a wild sixth inning, the Generals tied the game with three runs, including the tying run, scored on a disputed call. The call resulted in Cross and a couple of his players being ejected from the game.
