ST. MARYS â€“ Once again, Wilcox has the fate of a tournament come down to one game.
Wilcox will play for the Region 8 championship this afternoon after an 11-6 loss to French Creek Tuesday night at Berwind Park.
French Creek Valley will play Albion at 1 p.m. with the winner to play Wilcox at 4 p.m. for the championship. Wilcox also faced this situation in the Elk County League Tournament as the team lost to Fox Township but rebounded to win the following day in the league title game.
ST. MARYS â€“ The third inning has been a magic one for Wilcox at the Region 8 tournament.
Wilcox scored five runs in the third inning for the third consecutive game as Wilcox went to 3-0 on the tournament with a 14-6 win over Millcreek Monday night at Berwind Park in St. Marys.
"It was a nice start, that big inning again," Wilcox coach Jeff Peterson said. "I think we hit the third every time. It's usually the second time around in the lineup we see it and we're on it. The kids are really adjusting well and picking it up a notch."
