MINFORD — As the saying goes, better late than never.

Thanks to their offense scoring 11 runs in their final three trips to the plate, the No. 4-seed Minford Falcons defeated visiting Southeastern (No. 20-seed) 12-2 in six innings in a Division III sectional final.

The Falcons combined for 10 hits as a team in the win and benefitted from seven Panther errors.

Juniors Adam Crank and Cole Borland did most of the heavy lifting at the plate — as Crank went 2-of-3 with a walk and team-high four RBI, and Borland went 2-of-4 and scored a team-high three runs and drove in a pair.

Borland also earned the win on the mound, allowing nine hits, one earned run, issuing no walks and striking out four Southeastern batters.

The No. 4-seed Falcons will face No. 5-seed Wellston in a D-III, Chillicothe #2 district semifinal on Wednesday, May 25 at 7:00 p.m. at VA Memorial Stadium.
