The Gibraltar Vikings and the Sevastopol Pioneers will have a berth in Thursday's regional final on the line Tuesday afternoon when the two sides meet in Fish Creek.
The Vikings earned the number one seed in the region despite a 7-12 record this season. They did, however, beat Sevastopol earlier this season 17-9 on May 10th. Nate Greene played the role of a stopper in the game, pitching 2 1/3 innings of scoreless ball. Brady Kita had four RBI and Ryan Jorgenson had five RBI in the win. The Vikings concluded their season last Tuesday when they beat Sturgeon Bay 2-0 where Greene pitched seven innings of shutout ball while Will Friedenfels clubbed an RBI.
The Pioneers snapped a five-game losing streak last Thursday when it beat NEW Lutheran 7-2 in the first round of the WIAA Tournament. The Pioneers took control of the game from the first inning, plating three runs in the frame thanks to RBI hits by Cal Ellefson and Tommy Junion. The team would go on to tack on two runs in the third inning and one more in the second. Ellefson, Jack de Young, and Junion all had multiple hits in the game, led by Ellefson's 3-for-3 day. De Young did not need much help as he limited the Blazers to just two runs on two hits while striking out three. Frankie Ash closed things out in the seventh.
