SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Union City finally figured out Ligonier Valley pitcher Maddie Griffin, but it proved to be a little late.
Syd Gilbert hit a solo home run in the seventh inning, but that was the only tally of the game Griffin allowed in a 6-1 win over the Bears that lifted the Rams into the PIAA Class 2A championship game.
Griffin gave up just two hits, with the other being an Emylee Zielinski single in the sixth. She was perfect through the first four innings.
Ligonier Valley scored three runs in the third inning, two in the sixth and one in the seventh.
The dream season for Union City ends at 22-2.
More on this game will be posted later, including reaction from Union City manager Jerry VanZandt.
