Northumberland continues to be Lancaster’s stumbling block.

The Indians took a 4-1 lead after three innings and continued to tack on runs in each inning to beat host Lancaster, 10-1, last Thursday night in the Northern Neck District regular season ender for both teams.

The Red Devils are the district’s top seed and will receive a first round bye in next week’s Region 1A tournament with a 15-2 record and 9-2 mark in the district. Lancaster’s only two losses were to Northumberland, which enters this week’s Northern Neck District tournament with an 11-8 overall record and 5-5 league record as the fourth place team. Lancaster was scheduled to host the Indians in a semifinal game May 15, while second place Essex was supposed to host third place Washington & Lee.
