Doddridge County proved resilient in the final three frames, tallying up seven unanswered runs to pull back within striking distance of the Crusaders’ lead. The Crusaders found themselves struggling in the Bottom of the 7th inning, as Doddridge loaded the bases, bringing the tying run to first base.
