Greensburg Salem was one of the most dominant teams in the WPIAL during the regular season but none of that mattered on Thursday when the Golden Lions had their backs up against the wall in a WPIAL first-round matchup.
The top-seeded Golden Lions (18-2) found themselves trailing No. 16 Highlands (8-7) and on the verge of a potentially historic upset. Greensburg Salem had won more games (18) than Highlands had played all season (15). Greensburg Salem had one of the best pitcher/catcher batteries in the WPIAL with pitcher Jayne Oberdorf and catcher Taylor Mehan.
