EPC softball playoffs set
The East Penn Conference softball playoffs will look to beat the rain and get under way Friday afternoon.
By virtue of a perfect mark, the Parkland Trojans are this year’s number-one seed. They will face off against Northampton, which sneaks in as the number-eight seed. The two, of course, are very familiar Skyline Division opponents.
Liberty will take the second seed after finishing 14-2 in the EPC. They will take on seven-seed Whitehall, which is coming off a 9-8 shootout loss to Easton on Thursday afternoon in a game that featured seeding implications.
Three-seed Emmaus didn’t win the Skyline division but with a 13-3 mark will host Mountain Division winner Stroudsburg, which takes the sixth seed.
And in another rivalry game, Bethlehem Catholic takes the fourth seed and will host fifth-seeded Easton. The Hawks just beat the Rovers 5-2 on Wednesday afternoon, May 10.
All higher seeds will host the first rounds games at 4 p.m.
The semifinal round is scheduled to take place Monday night at Patriots Park in Allentown with the finals also scheduled for Pates Park, beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 18.
