ST. CLAIRSVILLE -Two quality teams with similar styles of play went back-and-forth on a roller coaster of momentum before No. 2-seeded Steubenville Catholic pushed across two runs, with two outs, on a soft single into center by senior catcher Taylor Clark, to lift the Crusaders to a hard-earned victory.
Steubenville Catholic was down to its final out after having a runner thrown out at the plate in the seventh. Sammi Giannamore raced to second with an uncontested stolen base.
Clark then lofted the ball into no-mans land behind second base in shallow center to send Giannamore.
