BRUNSWICK, Md. — After losing two games to Brunswick during the regular season by healthy scores, Boonsboro turned the tables on the Railroaders in the postseason.
After 12-2 and 10-1 losses during the regular season, Boonsboro put together one of its finest games of the season in turning back the Railroaders 6-1 in the Maryland Class 1A West region East section semifinals Tuesday.
Boonsboro (8-11-1) will hit the road again today to face Clear Spring (14-4), another MVAL Antietam Conference foe, at 4:30 p.m., hoping to duplicate the Brunswick outcome. During the regular season, Boonsboro lost to Clear Spring 11-1 and 16-6.
“We just want to keep (Clear Spring) in the park, pitch to contact and make the plays we’re supposed to make,” Boonsboro coach Ronnie Stewart said.
It was senior Brad Enfield’s finest moment as a pitcher as he went the distance, scattering six hits, allowing only an unearned run in the sixth inning after the Warriors had a 6-0 lead. He struck out four and walked only one, letting his defense work behind him.
“Zach Poffenberger made some great defensive catches in center field,” Stewart said.
Enfield also helped his own cause with a pair of hits and three RBIs. Scott Bennett also had a pair of hits and drove in two runs.
Boonsboro took control of the game against Brunswick (14-7) ace Collin Nusbaum, scoring two runs in each of the first and second innings for a 4-0 lead and then tacking on a pair in the fourth inning.
Dalton Stewart had a two-run single in the first, Enfield and Bennett each drove in a run in the second and Enfield had a two-run single in the fourth.

Williamsport 6, Poolesville 4
POOLESVILLE, Md. — Williamsport jumped out to a 6-0 lead and held on to beat Poolesville in the Maryland Class 2A West region quarterfinals.
The Wildcats will play today at 4:30 p.m. at Winters Mill, a 7-6 upset winner over Walkersville.
Williamsport (14-6) took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a triple by Brandon Toloso and a sacrifice fly by Riley Arnone.
It remained that way until the fourth when Williamsport hit Poolesville with five runs, getting a little help from the Falcons, who helped bring in two runs on a throwing error and another on a wild pitch third strike.
Sinjin Shoop had a two-run single in the fourth, one of just five hits the Wildcats had.
Arnone pitched the first four innings, allowing three hits and striking out four.
Poolesville (12-6) made things interesting with three runs in the bottom of the fifth and one in the sixth before Ryan Boward shut the door to pick up the save.
Williamsport has won three straight games and six of its last seven.
