July 17, 1985 — Big offensive games from Ken Snerr and Guido Dominic help Lehighton roll past Palmerton, 12-3, to win its best-of-three Lehigh Valley League playoff series, two games to one. Snerr goes 4-for-4 with three doubles, while Dominic collects three hits — a triple and two doubles — and knocks in five runs. The winners break the game wide open in the sixth when they score nine times, receiving two-run hits in the inning from Dominic, Scott Kmetz and Bill Fauzio. Dave Ligenza also contributes three hits, while Kmetz tosses a three-hitter, striking out five, to earn the win.
