Dark was credited with a complete game in the shortened six inning game, scattering 13 hits (2 BB, 2 K). First year Roughriders played a big role in the win.

Roughriders 3, Maple Shade 1 June 3, 2016
HADDONFIELD - Luke Westfield pitched a complete game, five-hitter in the Roughriders' 3-1 victory over visiting Maple Shade. The second year righty struck out three and walked two in an efficient performance. Mike McLauglin singled in Alex Reinicker for a 1-0 lead in the first, and Noah Clement's fielder choice RBI made it 2-0 after three innings. With the score 2-1 in the sixth, Tyler Easterday's sac fly scored Collin Fabio (1-3, 2B) for insurance before Westfield finished off his gem.
