S-E 9, Sauquoit Valley 8 (9 innings)
SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville staged a seventh-inning rally to force extra innings, and scored in the bottom of the ninth for its first win over Sauquoit Valley since joining the Center State Conference five years ago.

Hodge scored the game-winner in the ninth on a infield grounder.
