WILKES-BARRE TWP. - Hempfield's baseball team had things pretty much its own way for five-and-one-third innings of play here at Kings College Monday afternoon.

Then as quickly as a bolt of lightning Hazleton Area's superb team struck suddenly with a lethal pair of rallies to knock off the Black Knights, 4-3, in this single elimination PIAA, Class AAAA tournament.

This marked the first inter-district baseball playoff win in school history and sends the Cougars up against LaSalle College, the District 12-1 champion, which defeated Boyertown. (recap)
