SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Scoring nine runs over its final three at-bats, West Greene topped DuBois Central Catholic, 12-1, in the PIAA Class 1A semifinals Monday afternoon at Slippery Rock University.
The victory puts the Pioneers in the PIAA title game for the fifth time in the last six seasons, with only DCC’s victory in the 2019 semifinals keeping it being sixth straight for West Greene. It also marked the third time in the last five seasons the Pioneers beat DCC in the semifinals.
DCC took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a Mia Meholick double that scored Kayley Risser.
But after the second rain delay of the afternoon – the first happened before the game started – West Green scored three times in the top of the third to take a 3-1 lead.
The Pioneers then added three more runs in the fifth before scoring twice in the sixth and four times in the seventh to put the game away.
Much more on this game will be posted later, including reaction for DCC manager George Heigel and video highlights.
