THIELLS — I know this is my first year on softball and that I only covered one game prior to taking over the beat, but Saturday’s Section 1 Class A final between Pearl River and Brewster was by and large the best game I’ve seen in that time.
The Pirates (22-2) earned their first come-from-behind win of the season and ended Brewster’s perfect season with an 8-6 win at North Rockland High School. Pearl River scored three runs in the top of the seventh to break a 5-5 tie. Brewster (22-1) loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom half, but only scored once.
Pearl River will play Section 9’s Goshen in the state regional semifinals on Thursday at Chancellor Livingston Elementary School at 2:30 p.m.
