Hopewell Youth Baseball

HW Youth Baseball takes on CV, triple game coverage!



It was a busy night for HW Youth baseball but not at Kane Road. Three HW teams took on Central Valley at 6pm this evening.

Hopewell Little league Team Gigliotti loses 7-2 after six. Team Gigliotti couldn’t get the bats moving against a hard hitting CV – Boulding Team.

CV-Boulding has always been a difficult opponent at this age level with strong arms and heavy bats they delivered again with Boulding launching a two run home run in the bottom of the first inning.

Noah Honess started on the mound for HW and gave up one hit and three runs striking out two and walking one. The only offense came on five hits from Hopewell; Connor Reed, Rilynn Davis, Wesley Gigliotti, and Noah Honess all had hits. Team Gigliotti has a matchup on Tuesday against Ambridge.

Hopewell coach pitch Holsinger lost a back-and-forth game to CV 16 to 10.

CV took the lead 1-0 in the first inning on along over the fence homer.

The Young Hopewell hammers were not intimidated and bounce back to take the lead 4-1 on a Jacob Sutton three run triple.

Trailing 5-4 the hammers went on the offensive again and put a max 6 run inning together and took a 10-5 lead.

Unfortunately, the Hammers were done scoring and CV scored the final 11 runs on the evening to close out the come back win.

Jacob Sutton lead the charge with four hits and four RBIs. Deacon Ankrom, Max Holsinger and Nico BonAnno each collected three hits. Every kid on the team had at least one hit on the night.  Levi Schmidt won the game ball after registering his first two hits of his coach pitch career.

The team is back in action on Thursday at home versus Ambridge.
