WILCOX – Aiden Zimmerman’s sacrifice fly to right field scored Jefferson Freeburg in the bottom of the seventh Monday night as American Legion Post 467 won their season-opener 4-3 over visiting Smethport.

Freeburg opened the inning with a double to deep right-center off AJ Redmond, who went the distance for Post 976.

There was no throw to second when Zimmerman stole the base before his brother Aiden’s game-ending fly ball.
