MIFFLINTOWN — Greenwood finished the regular season with a win, but the Wildcats have a long road ahead of them if they hope to repeat as the District 3 Class A champion,

The ‘Cats had a dandy outing against Juniata Thursday, shutting out — and no-hitting — the Indians with Luke Myers and Aaron Bollinger doing the heavy lifting.

Greenwood won the Tri-Valley League meeting 7-0.

The duo combined on the bump for the almost-perfect game that saw only two Juniata runners reach base on a trio of walks. Myers, in six innings of work, struck out 11 batters to make it easier for his offense to put runs on the board.

His offense — mostly Bollinger — did just that, scoring twice in the opening half then adding five runs across the final two frames. Bollinger was 3-for-4 with three RBIs. Reilly Taylor, who also drove in a pair, had the game’s only extra-base hit, a double.

“We got outplayed today — end of story,” Juniata coach Nick Beward lamented.

Devon Nealman took the loss with four earned runs on Greenwood’s seven hits.

Juniata (6-11, 6-10) has two nonleague games left on the slate; the Indians are home today against Bald Eagle Area then travel to Montoursville to end the season.

Greenwood (10-8, 12-6) won the TVL West title and will be part of the league tournament, which starts with a semifinal game Monday at Halifax. The ‘Cats start play in District 3 on May 20. Barring a change in the district power ratings, they will travel to Christian School of York that day.
