Then on Thursday, Clarion hosted East Butler, in what proved to be the Championship clinching game. This one proved to be more of a test for the Clarion All-Stars, as they eked out a 1-0 win.
Cal and Hayden C. combined for a four hitter this time. While Clarion’s offense got the only run they needed in the fourth inning. All tolled, the mound duo and Clarion’s defense went 10 straight innings, without allowing a run.
Hayden C. and Chase Kriebel each had a double and Bryson Huwar and Cal each had a single for Clarion.
