"This pair of aces was "perfect" for WPIAL Class AAAA's only perfect regular-season team.
Neither Nick Cubarney nor Nick Kolat lost a decision this season for Norwin, going a combined 14-0. That shouldn't be surprising considering the Knights entered the postseason without a defeat in 17 games.
"Nick and Nick, these guys slowly improved each game they pitched," Norwin coach Mike Liebdzinski said. "We were pretty happy with our pitching by the end of the [regular] season."
Of course Norwin was. The Knights allowed only 11 runs in their final nine regular-season games.
To put that figure into perspective, Norwin scored at least 11 runs seven times in its final 11 regular season games.
Little wonder the Knights were undefeated."
