Donoho 5, Ragland 4 (8 innings): Blake Willingham pitched eight innings and the Falcons rewarded his tenacity with a run in the home half of the eighth for a 5-4 Class 1A, Area 9 win over visiting Ragland. Lucas Elliott opened Donoho’s eighth with a single. Connor Goodson followed Elliott with a ringing double to center field to send Elliott home with the deciding run.

Ragland had tied the game at 4-4 on a leadoff home run in the seventh by catcher Josh Phillips. The Purple Devils opened the eighth inning with a double. A heads-up fielder’s choice by Donoho shortstop Nick Thompson erased that runner trying to advance to third. On the next pitch, the Falcons turned an inning-ending double play to set the stage for the heroics by Elliott and Goodson.

Elliott was 2-for-4 with a game-tying two-run homer in the fourth. Goodson doubled twice in four at-bats. Willingham had a single, walked twice and scored one run. He gave up 10 hits, walked one and fanned four. All four Ragland runs were earned.

Other top performers for Donoho:
