Archbishop Ryan had just suffered a tough 10-0 whooping by Cardinal O’Hara and were in need of a desperate bounceback. They got just that when they played Lansdale Catholic Saturday afternoon. It was not an easy feat, but the Raiders willed one out with a final score of 4-3.

The game was played right outback of Archbishop Ryan and junior Anthony Giordano was called to start on the mound for the Raiders. Giordano went 5.1 innings and only allowed four hits along with three runs scored. He was great in his Catholic League debut and he finished the game with ten strikeouts.

At the beginning of the sixth inning, senior Brennan Hattala came in relief and kept the stellar pitching going. He pitched 1.2 innings and managed to only allow one hit while striking out three of the five batters he faced.

“I felt great and I am glad me and Ant could get our first catholic league win,” said Hattala.

The Raiders hitting was not consistent but it was just enough for them to pull out a win. All four of their runs came in the first inning courtesy of Nick Costanzo, Nick Glebocki, Adam Estrada and Hakim Abdus-Salaam.

“I know our hitting is going to pick up but all that mattered was getting a win today and making sure we are getting better as a team,” said Glebocki.

The Raiders moved to 1-1 in Catholic League play after this victory. The Raiders are now  2-6 in Catholic League competition.
