April 14: Warriors Bow to Hazleton, 11-7  

Citizen's Voice Summary: At Hazleton Area, Dante Biasi was the winning pitcher with 10 strikeouts and he helped hismself at the plate with two singles and four RBIs in Hazleton Area's victory.

Robert John had a home run and a double and drove in two runs for Hzleton, while Kyel Rogers connected for three singles.

Joe Gavenonis had a home run, single and three RBIs for Wyoming Area. Zach Lopatka had two singles and Corey Lescavage added a home run.

Freddie Cefelo Sr.'s Take: The WARRIORS lost for only the second time this season,to AAAA powerhouse Hazelton Cougars 11-7 The game was a lot closer than the score indicates,due to 3 long homeruns off the bats of Corey Lescavage, Joey Gavenonis,and Kyle Charney.This game was 4-4 in the 6th inning when Hazelton broke it open with 7 runs to take 11-4 lead.The WARRIORS made it interesting in the top of the 6th scoring 3 runs and loading the bases, only to come up short. For the WARRIORS it's time to get right back on the horse, when they travel to Crestwood Wednesday. "ONE GAME AT A TIME"

April 12: Herron Pitches Gem as Warriors Down Tunkhannock, 6-1  

WARRIORS PROVE POINT AGAINST TIGERS- TIMES LEADER
Colin Herron admitted Wyoming Area might have been flying under the radar. 
Joe Gavenonis quickly rephrased the statement.  “I don’t think we are anymore.” The designated hitter said.  “I think people might notice now.”  He’s probably right.
The Warriors exploded for three runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings, and Herron tossed a complete-game four hitter as Wyoming Area handed Tunkhannock its first loss, 6-1 at Atlas Field in a Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 contest.
Both teams now sit at 3-1 in the WVC.
“It’s one game at a time, and every day as we get more varsity experience on this field, it’s a big thing for us,” Wyoming Area manager Dean carey said.  “Today these kids showed me something.   Tunkhannock is a fantastic team.  It’s a big early season win for the program, but we have a lot of work to do yet.”
While Herron tossed a beauty on the bump, the senior pitcher quickly deflected the attention from himself and shifted it toward the defense.
And yes, the defense was a picture-perfect scene.
Left fielder Kyle Charney made a sensational diving catch that saved two runs in the second inning.
Right fielder Zack Lopatka cut down two runners in the fourth-a frame where it appeared the Tigers might break it open after back to back hits from Austin Burke and Conner Knott.
And a Jeremy Zezza-Tino Romanelli-Tyler Mitchell double play in the fifth stopped a trip through the top of Tunkhannock’s order.  “Our defense stepped up today, “Carrey said.  “If you play the game in all three phases—if you are able to hit, catch and throw—you are going to be in games.  I want these kids to compete every game.”
With the way his defense was playing behind him, Herron navigated through the Tigers’ lineup-allowing four hits, all singles, and stranding six on base.
“I’m so confident in my defense the pitcher said.  “they are behind me the whole time.  They are great.  I know that I just have to put the ball in the zone and let them make their plays.  The plays Zack made in right field were amazing.  Those throws were perfect to get those kits out.”
His counterpart, Tunkhannock’s Brett Hughes had no problems through three innings.  He retired nine straight batters on 37 pitches with a sharp-bending curve that created timing issues. 
The Warriors quickly6 figured it out the second time through the lineup.
Gavenonis dropped a game tying, two-out double to the gap in the left –center field, just beyond the outstretched arem of outfielder Brian Muckin, and Mitchell followed with a mammoth two run shot that easily cleared the fence in right field.
A one-run fourth-inning deficit was quickly turned into a 3-1 Wyoming Area lead.
We’ve seen a lot pitchers with a really hard fastball and today he had a good curve so we had to stay back and just think middle,”  Gavenonis said.  “Getting that big double, man, it feld great.  The first time through the lineup, we had to adjust.  We had to stay back in the box and just hit center and right field.”
The Warriors added three more in the fifth on a two-run single by Romanelli and a RBI poke by Core Lescavage.
“I though we were a little impatient the first time through,”  Carey said.  “The second time, I wanted our hitters to let him come to them.  They came alive with their bas.” 
Romanelli and Gavdenonis each had two hits for Wyoming Area.  Ryan Weiss, Brett Soltysiak, Burke and Knott had the Tigers’ singles.

Freddie Cefalo Sr's Take

The WARRIORS continued their wining ways Sat. night by defeating the defending champs, Tunk. Tigers 7-1 in front of a packed house at the ATLAS, to move into first place in the powerful WVC. Senior pitcher COLIN HERRON was masterful in his second start,scattering 4 hits in a complete game win,to bring his record to 2-0.The offense is coupling short ball,and long ball,to keep the pressure on opposing pitchers all game long. Saturday was no different with lead off batter T. Romanelli,who always starts things off,going 2-3 with 2 singles 2-RBI's, Coery Lescavage(this kid is tuff) long double-2 RBI's, Joey Gavenonis single,double RBI, Bryant Clark clutch double,and Freddie Cefalo and Jeremy Zezza both singling in big spots The long ball again came off the bat of SWEET swinging Tyler Mitchell,who drove a tape measure shot over the 330 mark in right field,for his second blast of this young season.Mitch is a pleasure see when he steps in the batters box. All in all manager Dean Carey and his staff has this TEAM believing in themselves, and they are fun to watch.The WARRIORS catch a flight Monday to take on a strong Hazelton team,so if your not doing anything ,come follow, it'll be worth your time.

 
April 10: 8 Run Fourth Fuels Warrior Win over Dallas, 9-7  

Citizens Voice Summary and Box

At the Atlas Complex, Zack Lopatka had two hits and Jeremy Zezza and Joe Gavenonis each drove in two runs to lead Wyoming Area to a 9-7 win over Dallas on Thursday in WVC baseball. Lucas Jurchak cpitched three innings of relief to get the win. Gavenonis worked the seventh for the save. Chad DeBona and Bill Gately each scored two runs for Dallas.

Freddie Cefalo Sr.'s Take

The WARRIORS beat a stubborn DALLAS team 9-7 at a wind swept ATLAS complex,to improve their WVC record to 2-1,and 4-1 overall. This was a great game for the fans to watch.The WARRIORS fell behind 6-1 before storming back with 8 runs in the fifth to take the lead for good. Every player on this team is doing his part,but I'm going to talk about one in particular. Freshman pitching phenom Lucas "LUKE" Jurchack got the win for the WARRIORS,and was simply GREAT. Luke and Josh Kopcza another freshman pitcher are names you will hear a lot in the years to come for manager Dean Carey. OK now for the offense; after a sluggish start the WARRIORS got it together with the usual suspects, Kyle Charney and Zack Lopatka stayed RED hot, both going 2-3 each with a single and double. Also Cory Lescavage and Bryant Clark singled,with Clark collecting a RBI.The big RBI guys tonight were Jeremy Zezza, with 2 clutch hits and 3-RBI's and Joey Gavenonis who had a timely single that drove in 2 RBI's. Joey" BAGS" also got the save for the WARRIORS. Manager Dean Carey has put together a GREAT coaching staff this year that the kids love to play for, and has these kids believing they could WIN no matter the circumstances. It was a Great day for BASEBALL. ONE GAME AT A TIME.
