Like two heavyweight prize fighters, the baseball teams for Bethlehem Christian Academy and Fullington Academy slugged it out for three games Saturday and Monday.
When all was said and done, BCA — the champion — survived to play another day. After both teams posted 4-3 wins Saturday, the Knights used a two-run homer by Brad Toxen in the bottom of the sixth inning in Monday’s third and deciding contest to advance to the semifinals.
Make no mistake, Fullington tested BCA like no team in GISA Class A has done this spring. There was even talk at the ballpark that the Trojans and Knights were the two best teams in their classification. They just happened to meet in the quarterfinals.
