Parkview Sweeps in First Round

Panthers beat Centennial 5-1 and 6-5 to advance in Class AAAAA baseball playoffs.

Parkview's baseball team swept visiting Centennial by scores of 5-1 and 6-5 Friday in the first round of the Class AAAAA playoffs.

The Panthers advance to face either North Gwinnett or Etowah in the second round, beginning next Wednesday.

Matt Olson took the pitching win, striking out nine,  and added a two-run home run in the first game.

The Panthers had to hold on after taking a 5-0 lead in the second game. Centennial, which was the home team in the second game, scored three runs and two more in the fifth, and threatened again after that.

Parkview relief pitcher Steve Esmonde, who had four hits and three RBIs in the series, piched out of a two-on, two-out jam in the bottom of the sixth, then pitched the seventh to pick up the save. 

The video attached to this article shows the final out and celebration.
