After a first round loss at the Class C Area 5 tournament in Osceola, the Albion Senior Legion team's chances at another trip to the state tournament seemed distant.
However, the six-seeded seniors fought there way to the championship game with wins over S.O.S., Twin River and Sutton. The met the top seed David City, needing to win twice to knock off David City and go back to state.
In what turned out to be game one, David City jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Albion matched that score, bringing around three runs in the top of the fourth. That scored remained into extra innings until Albion brought in two runs in the top of the ninth to force a game two.
In game two, Albion started fast and never let up. They scored three runs in the top of the first, three more in the third, one in the fifth, four in the sixth and two in the seventh to upset David City 13-6.
The win sends Albion to the Class C State Tournament in Ainsworth where they will face the winner of the Class C Area 2 tournament. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 30.
