"UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- For a brief moment, it looked as if Beaver had escaped.

One out from elimination, the Bobcats got an RBI single that tied the score and gave them some momentum.

For good measure, the song "Stayin' Alive" played on the Lubrano Park loudspeakers as the team looked to send the game to extra innings.

But just as quickly as Beaver extended its season, it ended.

Bailey Young drove a single to right in the bottom of the seventh to bring home Robbie Kline and give Loyalsock Township a walkoff, 5-4 victory against Beaver in the PIAA Class AA baseball championship Friday."
