Despite seven strikeouts in six innings from pitcher Joe Nagel, Sewickley Academy was ousted from the PIAA Class A playoffs in a 3-2 first-round loss to Elk County Catholic at Brockway High School on Monday.

Drew Johnson had a double for Sewickley Academy (10-7), which rallied for two runs in the top of the fifth to tie the score at 2-2, only to give up the deciding run in the bottom of the fifth.

Elk County Catholic advances to play WPIAL runner-up Carmichaels in the PIAA quarterfinals Thursday at a time and site to be determined.

Martinsburg Central 4, Quaker Valley 1 — Quaker Valley (18-4), the third-place team from the WPIAL, fell to Martinsburg Central, the first-place finisher in District 6, in the first round.

The Quakers led 1-0 in the fifth inning, scoring on a wild pitch. But Central managed four runs over the next two innings to seal the win.

Mike Mock earned the win for Central, which will play the winner of Franklin and Seton-La Salle in the quarterfinals Thursday.
