COAL CITY, W.Va (WVVA)- After splitting eir games in tournament play, it all came down to Saturday for the Class AA Region 3 Section 2 title.

Independence hosted the Shady Spring Tigers in a battle for the section championship. The game was scoreless through 6 innings thanks to great pitching by Alex Johnson and Atticus Goodson.

Shady Spring finally broke the game open in the top of the 6th off of a wild throw from the Patriots, but Independence would tie it back up a half-inning later. Cyrus Goodson would then unleash a 2-run home run to center field to put the Patriots on top, and Independence would win the section title 5-1.
