Behind a strong outing behind senior pitcher Will Pfennig, the GMC Champion  Mason Comets eliminated a very good Centerville Elks contingent 3-2 to move onto to the OHSAA Regional Finals (Elite Eight).  Their Regional Final opponent will be the Moeller Crusaders who defeated their arch rival, Elder Panthers, by a similar 3-2 score.  The Regional championship game will be played on Friday, May 25th at the University of Cincinnati @ 5:00 PM with the winner moving to the OHSAA "Final Four".

When the OHSAA Regional Semi-Final dust settled in Centerville on Wednesday, May 23rd, only the Lakota West Firebirds from the GMC moved onto the Regional Finals (Elite Eight). In tightly contested games, Lakota East fell to Ohio's #1 ranked squad, the Lebanon Warriors by a score of 6-3 and the GMC Champion Mason Comets dropped the night cap event by a score of 9-3 to the West Firebirds. Even though both scores give the appearance of comfortable victories, nothing could be further from the truth. In both circumstances, these contests were extremely tight until the later innings. 

Lakota West now moves on to face Lebanon in the OHSAA Regional Finals on Saturday, May 26th @ 12:00 PM at Centerville High School.  The winner of this showdown will advance to the OHSAA "Final Four".
