Much of Friday's Elk County Tournament opening round matchup between the St. Marys Area Flying Dutchmen and Johnsonburg Rams was an offensive struggle as the game was scoreless until the bottom of the fifth inning as the Rams were able to push through their lone run. It seemed like that might be the only score of the day as both teams continued to strand base runners, but then the Dutchmen put together an impressive rally in the top of the seventh, coming from behind to win 3-1.
The Elk County Catholic Crusaders advanced to the championship game of the 16th annual Elk County Baseball Tournament with a 12-2, five inning victory over the Ridgway Elkers Friday afternoon at Berwind Park.
