In a game both teams desperately needed it was Wellsboro pulling out the 2-1 win over Mansfield in 10 innings.
"It was a real classic pitcher's duel," said Green Hornet coach Philip Prough. "A great game."
Both teams scored one run in the first inning but after that the scoring dried up.
"Both teams had some chances," explained Prough. "Both teams took some risks, each team defensively made plays. It was a game of defense."
Brandon Owlett then brough him home on a sacrifice fly to right field for the win.
"Mansfield is a good team," said Prough. "And while we are good enough to play with them it certainly was a great game for both teams. We're fortunate to get the win."
Allen started and went nine innings for the no decision. He struck out four while allowing one run and one hit by pitch.
"I was really happy with Joe Allen's performance," remarked Prough.
