HERMITAGE – It will be another solid test for the Keystone 9-11 All-Stars as they will face Section 7 champ South Middletown in the Pennsylvania 9-11 State Championship finals tonight at 7 p.m.
These two teams met in the winner’s bracket final with Keystone pulling out an exciting and memorable 11-8, eight-inning win over South Middleton on Wednesday.
South Middleton had to battle back in the elimination game yesterday by defeating Section 8 champ Aston-Middleton, 4-3. South Middletown had edged Aston-Middletown in the first round, 8-7 and then Abington, 2-1 in the second round of play.
Keystone picked up their first wins of the tourney with an 11-1 win over State College then outlasted Norwin, 4-3 in the second round.
If Keystone wins tonight, they will be Pennsylvania champions. Under the double-elimination format, should South Middleton win tonight, it would force a final winner-take-all game set for Saturday, July 27 at 7 p.m.
