"It was a nice win for us tonight," Towanda coach Bill Sexton said. "We played a competitive game last night and came up on the short end of it. We played a competitive game tonight and came out on the long end of it. The kids battled, we came out, got down 3-0 and Shane (Martin) struggled with his control right off the bat. He threw real well at CV last week and tonight he struggled with the strike zone. But, he didn't quit. He didn't hang his head. He played good defense in the outfield and came up big for us. I'm really pleased for him.

"I was really pleased with Caleb Lines. He came in with no warmup and did a really nice job. I was pleased with Brayden Manchester, he came in today and threw two solid innings for us, then Lars (Thomason) came in, threw a good inning for us and got the win. We did the things tonight you have to do to win games. We played some good defense tonight. We turned two double plays, and (Keegan) Kisner ran down a long fly ball at the fence."
