Class AAA No. 6 Wheeling Park beats Moorefield for 5-0 start

WASHINGTON, Pa. — Class AAA No. 6 Wheeling Park stayed unbeaten on the early season Friday afternoon with a 5-1 win over Moorefield from Wild Things Park in Washington, PA.

Moorefield, which has a win over Jefferson on its slate so far, entered Friday’s matchup ranked No. 6 in Class A.

“That’s a very good Single A team – they’re very sound and they have some really good arms, especially the first two arms we faced,” said Wheeling Park coach Mike McLeod. “They’re going to have a lot of success.

“For us, it’s bittersweet, we have a sectional seeding game on Monday against Brooke and that’s not going to be easy,” he continued. “They’ve got a good group coming back and we’ll see what happens.”

The win improved Wheeling Park to 5-0 on the season as they broke open a 2-1 game in the top of the seventh with three runs, including a two-run-scoring single from Brett Donohew.

The Patriots are looking for a return to the state tournament in Charleston after missing out a season ago, but bringing back a core group.

“We’re very athletic,” McLeod said. “But it’s hard for me to say this early, but I like being around them, they’re loose. We have about four or five guys on the mound who we have a lot of confidence in and we’ll see what happens.”
