BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – The Tyrone Golden Eagles overcome an early deficit and a downpour to defeat the Hopewell Vikings, 8-1 in the state finals.
The first round of the 3A PIAA showdown remained pointless, but Hopewell got an early lead on top of the second, 1-0.
Two errors by Hopewell in the second round allowed six runs and a comfortable lead for Tyrone who headed into the third round, 6-1. Heavy rain forced both teams off the track for a delay, but Tyrone managed to strike on two more races before finishing the fourth, 8-1.
Tyrone maintained its seven-lead lead for the rest of the rainy game and will face Central High School in the PIAA 3A semifinals on Monday, June 14th.
