Fort Hill, down 8-0, rallied in the top of the seventh, loading the bases with a walk, a hit batter and a single by K’shaun Powell. Dalton Gaus hit a two-run single, but Matt Oleksik, the fourth Allegany pitcher, came on and fanned three of the next four hitters to end it.

Allegany pitchers combined for 14 strikeouts. Starter Bryce Nightengale struck out nine in 4 1-3 innings, Eirich fanned two in 1 2-3 innings and Oleksik struck out three in the seventh.

Sivic finished with a homer, two singles and four RBIs to lead a nine-hit attack. Ryan Murphy stroked three singles.

Tyler Conley drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly to deep left field, and after an intentional walk to Josh McNeil, Arnold stroked a two-run single to make it 5-0. Smith singled to knock in McNeil and complete the inning.

Musselman scored four runs in the top of the seventh, with Thomas Presley hitting a three-run double. Three of the runs were unearned because of two Frankfort errors
