Freshman Anthony Dilks pitched a complete-game two-hitter and Tyler Strano crushed a solo home run to break a 2-2 tie as the baseball team fought off a pesky Paulsboro squad, 4-2, at Union Field Thursday.
Dilks, who struck out seven Red Raiders, also went 2-for-3 at the plate with a run batted in. Ty Castellano and Brendan Glass also added RBIs for the Eagles.
The Eagles got in another win at blustery RiverWinds, beating Haddon Heights, 171-183. Matt Santarelli led West Deptford, shooting a 41 on the day.
West Deptford fell behind in the first half and couldn’t make up enough ground in the second, falling to Cherokee, 10-8. The Eagles outscored Cherokee in the second half, but the 8-5 advantage the Chiefs built at halftime was enough of a cushion to preserve the game.
Paige Paratore, who scored four goals, and Rachel Krott, who netted a hat trick, were the top scorers for West Deptford.
