Entering Thursday's critical Section 1-AAAA tilt with Penn-Trafford, Latrobe was undefeated in games when it scored multiple runs. So when the Wildcats scored 12 runs against the Warriors, they should have been feeling pretty comfortable. Except you can expect the unexpected in Section 1-AAAA. It was the Warriors winning a wild 13-12 game after scoring seven runs in the top of the seventh inning.
The game was of critical importance in the hotly-contest Section 1-AAAA where Hempfield (11-2, 10-0) has a commanding lead over Penn-Trafford (12-3, 8-3), Latrobe (9-4, 7-3), Connellsville (6-5, 6-4) and Norwin (7-4, 5-4). Not only was the Warriors win big to vault themselves into section place, but it also creates separation with fourth- and fifth-place Connellsville and Norwin who remain in contention.
