Big match-up in the Mid-Illini tonight.

13-1 Morton Potters travel to Washington to face the pre-season favorites. I suspect tonight will be a match-up of the 2 big lefties.

And yes, I may be the only one who cares. :lol:

It was your team's night, O&B. Panthers beat the Potters 1-0 in 8 innings. The game featured 33 strikeouts and only 3 hits. The pitching match-up between Harris and Rolley was legit next level elite.

Two good teams with great pitching!

I assume they were rained out today. Were they rescheduled for tomorrow?

Panthers finish 14 -0 in conference. Outstanding year with some decent teams in conference. Morton, Metamora very solid.

Pitching dominates and Panthers have a couple of aces.

Having said that, tourney is one and done if you don't have your game.

I'd love to see a re-match of Roley-Harris (2 of the 3 Bradley commits) in the Sectional Final, only with the Potters coming out on top this time.

Well the 2 teams are meeting in the Sectional championship for the second consecutive year, but it won't be Roley and Harris. Roley threw 60 pitches in Morton's blow out of Rock Island on Wednesday, so he could go again, but Harris threw 108 Wednesday night against Galesburg, so he can't go.

Call me the pessimist but it's hard to beat a good team 3 times. Just sayin

Washington was just too good again for the Potters.

Good luck to the Panthers the rest of the way. With their 2 big senior starting pitchers, I like their chances.

That dude from C-G is a Louisville commit and only a Junior. He'll be tough to get through again next year for Washington or Morton (or whoever else might make it out of the local sectional).

And his brother, who also pitched at Louisville, threw a no-hitter for the Angels earlier this year.
