With yesterday’s pair of wins and Brooklawn Post 72 winning the District 3 tournament without a loss, Bordentown will get to play Brooklawn 7 p.m. tomorrow night at Moody Park, this year’s host to the American Legion Final 8 tournament.
Dolan’s squads just continue to excel at the best time of the season.
After beating a good Gibbsboro team 6-1, it followed with a 16-hit attack against Watchung Hills, Post 26’s district tournament record from 2006 to the present is an eye-popping 20-3 and they roll into the state finals having won 17 of their last 18 games.
“I don’t know what it is about our team and district tournaments,” said Dolan.
“We talked before we came here today and these guys have made it hard on themselves all year.
They’ve been resilient all year and this is a close group and we needed a win like this one to bust out.
“It’s a good feeling go into the finals. We’ll have a lot of confidence.
I know we’ve drawn Brooklawn, who’s as tough as can be, but you’ve got to play the game. What we were capable of doing we finally did today.
