Bell City, St. Vincent Reach Quarterfinals With Win

The Bell City Cubs are at it again and now sit just one win away from returning to State for the third consecutive year and looking to reclaim the title once again. The Cubs trailed 1-0 going into the top of the third and scored three runs thanks to Chase Dembowski hitting a two run triple with two outs before being driven in himself by Jesse Smith. Senior pitcher, Austin Hicks threw a complete game and gave up just one hit with only needing 64 pitches in seven innings of work. The Cubs went on to win 7-1 and will host Eminence on Wednesday, May 24 at 4 PM in the sectional match up.

Going into the bottom of the fifth St. Vincent trailed opponent Van-Far 4-1 and Ethan Pecaut stepped to the plate and blasted a three run homer to tie the game at 4 which propelled the Indians to have a 9 run 5th inning before run-ruling Van Far an inning later and winning 15-5 to continue the Cinderella Story the Indians are on and just one win away now from the State Semifinals. They have just now improved to a game over .500 at 11-10. It’s the first time since 2001 the Indians will play in a quarterfinal game.
