LOMA is your 2019 Pendel League Champions!!!
This past Sunday, LOMA defeated Horsham 3 games to 1 to capture the 2019 Pendel League Championship. This weekend was filled with fireworks and historic performances. The first performance that stands out is from Horsham's Matt Mcallister. Matt is a West Chester graduate and D2 World Series Champion who had one of the gutsiest performances in recent memory. Matt threw a complete game shutout Friday night in a game 5 win against Southampton, threw 2 innings on Saturday in Game 1 and started and threw 7 innings in Game 4 on Sunday.
While Matt's performance was something remarkable to watch, the man who stole the show was LOMA's Tyler Dipatri. Tyler Dipatri (Penn State Abington) entered his first season this year with LOMA and was responsible for the biggest hit of the 2019 campaign. In the top of the 7th, Tyler hit drove a fastball over the right center field fence for his 4th grand slam of the season. Tyler's grand slam in the top of the 7th gave LOMA a 9-5 lead which ended up being the difference maker.
To say LOMA has been on a remarkable run is an understatement. Since starting 5-11-1 last year, LOMA has been on a 39-5 run in the regular season. When watching LOMA play, you see a well oiled machine. LOMA's .867 Win % is their highest in league recorded history.
