Susquehannock’s Logan Houser and Dover’s Jordyn Hennessy each turned the trick.

Houser looks in prime form for the Warriors’ baseball team headed into the high school postseason. The Susquehannock pitcher was dominant in a 10-0 mercy-rule triumph over Eastern York. He struck out nine and walked one, needing 69 pitches.

The Warriors’ offense, meanwhile, pounded out 10 hits, led by AJ Miller (2 for 3, double, two runs, one RBI), Luke Geiple (homer, two RBIs) and Brian Penn (double, RBI, run).

Susquehannock finished the regular season at 16-4 overall. The York-Adams Division III champion Warriors finished 14-0 in league action.
