HAMILTON — The Point Boro baseball team came up short in the NJSIAA Group II final on Saturday, losing to Pascack Hills, 2-0, at Bob DeMeo Field in Hamilton. 

Reaching the final was a first for the Panthers but they fell late in the pitchers duel between their own Nick Guzzi and Pascack Hills’ Ryan Ramsey – both Division I commits.   

Pascack Hills scored both runs in the bottom of the sixth, after loading the bases with no outs. Mike Rodriguez singled up the third baseline to bring in the two runs, ending the Panthers season.
