Pittston Area has decided to forfeit its last baseball game of the season following last week’s bench-clearing brawl at a game against Wyoming Valley West, which has also forfeited its last game. The moves take both teams out of contention for the division title, although both will compete in the District 2 playoffs, which begin Friday. Additional discipline from the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association is possible.
