Chesapeake baseball earns another shot –

After falling in last year’s state final, all Chesapeake wanted this year was a chance to play again for a state title.

Thanks to the formula they used all season, the Cougars are in the state final for the second year in a row.

Dylan Young pitched five strong innings and Joe Seidler had the key hit during a five-run third inning, as Chesapeake advanced to the state final with a 5-1 victory over C. Milton Wright on Tuesday in a Class 3A state semifinal at Joe Cannon Stadium.

Chesapeake (20-3) will face Montgomery County’s Poolesville on Saturday night at Ripken Stadium. The Cougars are in the state final for the seventh time and are looking for their third title. Poolesville is in the state final for the first time in school history after winning its second region title in four years.
