It's playoff time in the Susquehanna League.
The first-round pairings for the playoffs were set Tuesday evening when Felton blanked Windsor 4-0 in a play-in game.
That gave Felton the final berth in the best-of-three, first-round series, which start Thursday evening.
The three first-round series are:
No. 7 seed Felton (4-32) vs. No. 2 seed York Township (22-13).
No. 6 seed Jacobus (17-18) vs. No. 3 seed Hallam (21-14).
No. 5 seed Stewartstown (19-16) vs. No. 4 seed Conrads (21-14).
York Township, Hallam and Conrads will each play host to a Game 1 at 5:45 p.m. Thursday.
Game 2 for each series is set for 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Felton, Jacobus and Stewartstown.
Game 3 in each series, if needed, will be 2 p.m. Sunday at York Township, Hallam and Conrads.
County title series set: East Prospect (26-9), the Susquehanna League regular-season champion, got a bye in the first round of the league playoffs.
The Pistons, however, will be in action this weekend in the York County Championship Series against Central League regular-season champion Stoverstown (26-4-1).
Game 1 in the county title series is 1:30 p.m. Saturday at East Prospect. Game 2 is 1 p.m. Sunday at Stoverstown. Game 3, if needed, will immediately follow Game 3 at Stoverstown.
Lauer shines for Felton: Felton punched its playoff ticket Tuesday behind a five-hit shutout pitching performance from Briar Lauer. He struck out seven and walked four, needing 99 pitches.
Mike Godfrey (two hits, two RBIs), Cole Delp (two hits), Patrick Daugherty (homer) and Ben Kitzmiller (double, run) paced Felton's nine-hit attack.
Matt Robinson and Shawn Wilson each had two hits, including a double, for Windsor. Brian Dinsmore also doubled. Wilson pitched a complete game, allowing three earned runs, striking out six and walking three.
Windsor finished at 11-25.
