LOGAN, W.Va. — In a battle of teams that both reached the Class AA state tournament last season, No. 1 Independence beat defending state champion No. 2 Logan, 12-6.

Atticus Goodson helped key the Patriots to the win with three hits, including a triple, and a pair of RBIs. Teammate Andy Lester drove in five runs and added two hits in the victory.

The Wildcats’ Korbin Bostic accounted for a home run and triple in defeat.

The teams had been scheduled to meet on separate occasions earlier this season, but weather forced the matchups to be postponed.
