Sean Knepper belted a solo home run in the top of the seventh inning to lift Bremen past Westview, 2-1 in the semifinals of the Class 2A LaVille baseball sectional last Thursday evening.
Knepper also doubled and scored the Lions’ first run.
Adrian Brandenberger singled home Luke Miller in the bottom of the first inning to account for the lone Warrior tally. Miller had doubled in front of Brandenberger.
The setback ended Westview’s season with a 14-11 record.
Central Noble, which beat LaVille, 14-4 in the other semifinal game, went on to tip Bremen, 3-2 Monday afternoon to claim the sectional championship. The 18-11 Cougars meet Fort Wayne Luers in the 2A regional at Whiting this Saturday.
