Bishop Eustace's offense did its job on Saturday, and Devin Smeltzer made it impossible for the opponent's lineup to do the same.
Smeltzer pitched all seven innings, allowing one earned run and striking out 12, and the Crusaders downed New Egypt, 8-2, in the first round of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic at Washington Township.
Smeltzer had full control of his repertoire, walking just one.
Sam Steele and Dan Marano each registered three hits for Bishop Eustace. Zac Gallen had two doubles, scored a run, and added an RBI.
In other Diamond Classic action:
Eric Schorr scored from second on an errant throw from a Delsea infielder, and Audubon won a 6-5, eight-inning nail-biter at Maple Shade. With two out and Schorr on second base, Bob Panico reached on an error after a throw sailed over the first baseman. Schorr came around to score the eventual winning run.
Vineland used five doubles and two four-run innings to oust Northern Burlington, 12-5, at Deptford. John Malatesta hit a double and earned the win. Tyler O'Dell hit a double and a triple for Northern Burlington.

Paul VI's Sam Jarvis scored his 100th goal, but it was overshadowed by Brad Peditto's performance for Holy Cross in the Lancers' 11-9 home victory in a nonleague game. Peditto scored a game-high five goals and assisted on four others. Jarvis collected four goals and two assists.
