Monmouth County Tournament


(1) Ranney 13, (8) Middletown South 1

Senior Brett Wehringer singled home a run in Ranney's five-run first and two in the seven-run third to highlight a Panthers rout of the Eagles.

Ranney moves on to face one of three teams in the Monmouth County Tournament semifinals -- the program's first ever trip to the final four of the county tournament. St. Rose is scheduled to play at Rumson-Fair Haven in the MCT round of 16 on Saturday, with the winner taking on Manasquan in the quarterfinals. The team that emerges from that trio will take on Ranney with a spot in the championship game on the line.
