PEM Holds Off Elimination – Joins Caledonia In Final Three
Two teams out of each subsection make it to the final four of the Section Tournament. After falling to Caledonia in the Subsection Semifinals, the Bulldogs advanced after beating Lake City in the elimination game.
The Bulldogs beat the Tigers 18-8 behind some phenomenal two-out hitting. Barron Holtz got the scoring going with a 2-run blast, while Jared Zabel added a two-run homer of his own. Joe Irish had a 3-RBI double, while Holtz had a 3-RBI triple that he eventually scored one when they tried to throw him out at third.
The bats were loud for PEM, which allowed them to open up a 10-run lead in the 6th. Now, the Bulldogs will play the loser of Caledonia vs. La Crescent as they try to advance to the Final Four of Section 1AA.
La Crescent took down Lake City 5-2 and will take on Caledonia at 3 pm Monday and we will have the action on 103.1 KFIL.
The final three teams all come from the Three Rivers Conference, while every team remaining in the West are from the Hiawatha Valley League.
It will be a big day on Monday, and one team's season will be ending in the process.
