With just five more wins meaning a state title, Benet Academy takes on Montini Catholic in the sectional semifinals.
This game got out to an unreal start. The Redwings plated two runs in the top of the first on RBI hits from both Alex Tassos and Dan Sobolewski.
Montini answered in the bottom half of the inning, Cooper Hynes hit an RBI single before Jake Gerberich drove in two with another base hit to take a 3-2 lead.
In the second, the Redwings tied it at three before Erik Jones hit a triple down the line bringing home CJ Birck and Kevin Doyle for the 5-3 lead.
The Broncos once again charged right back, this time thanks to a bases loaded double from Nick Malik that plated three runs to give Montini the 6-5 edge through two.
Each team would pick up another before Dan Sobolewski scored on a fielders choice in the fifth to tie the game at 7.
Once again Montini loaded the bases in the bottom of the sixth, Dan Sobolewski made a terrific diving stop on a hard hit ball by Alex Luca but JR Walsh scored the go ahead run as Benet Academy fell 8 to 7.
