Purdy wins District 12 title
No. 2 Eagles upset Pierce City, 6-3
The Purdy baseball team came into the Class 2, District 12 tournament as the No. 2 seed, but that was no matter to the Eagles.
Purdy played the underdog role against No. 1 Pierce City Tuesday, coming out on top with a 6-3, district championship win.
"Our boys played well," said Joshua Hughes, Purdy coach. "We were able to take advantage of the opportunities when they were presented."
Pierce City was disappointed with the runner-up finish.
"It wasn't what we wanted," said Chris Mettlach, Pierce City coach. "You have to credit Purdy for winning this game."
The Eagles advance to the sectional round on Monday and will play at Marionville. Game time has not been determined.
