The Borgia Knights took a 3-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning against the top rated class 4 team in the state, but Westminster showed why they've won 29 games this year, rallying with three runs on four hits, including a bad hop single, to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat 4-3. Tony Helfrich had held the Wildcats to two hits before the seventh. He was saddled with the loss. Ben Lovell was the winner.
