Albion ended Millcreek’s six-year run as Erie County champion with a 10-8 win Tuesday in an American Legion baseball game. Albion ran through the eight-team tournament field and finished 4-0. Both teams advance to the Region 8 tournament beginning Saturday in St. Marys.
Corry overcame a 1-0 deficit in the best-of-three championship series to take the Warren County championship against Warren. Corry forced a third game by winning the second in extra innings on a balk. On Tuesday, Corry beat Warren 12-9 to earn an automatic spot.
Out of the eight spots in the Region 8 tournament, six have been clinched. St. Marys, Albion, Millcreek, Corry, French Creek Valley and Meadville are in. The Butler and Elk champions are still to be determined. Butler is down to Saxonburg against either Butler City or East Butler. The Elk County spot will be either Wilcox or Fox Township.
