Chugiak 9, Juneau 3
The Chugiak Post 33 Mustangs are headed back to the title game for the second straight year.
They have unfinished business.
Chugiak beat Juneau Post 25 by a 9-3 score in the final winner's bracket game during Day 6 of the Alaska Legion state tournament at Mulcahy Stadium.
Chase Wilson threw eight-plus strong innings and the top of the order provided a spark and an explosion for the Mustangs, which picked up their 21st victory.
Leadoff hitter Alex Hess went 3-for-5 with three runs and an RBI. No. 2 hitter Devin Ferriss was 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs. No. 3 hitter Conner Cimmiyotti was 2-for-5 with a run and two RBIs.
Wilson pitched 8.1 innings, scattering six hits and eight walks. Cimmiyotti came in relief with one out in the ninth inning. He threw one pitch and got a double play to end the game.
For Juneau [22-8], Tal Norvell and Tanner Petrie each had two hits and Tod Baseden and Kellen Johansen each finished with one RBI.
It was the first tournament loss for Juneau, which will face South in an elimination game Wednesday for the right to play Chugiak in Thursday's state championship game.
