Sawyer Howard led the Knights to a thrilling 1-0 victory in the first must-win game of the day on Saturday in Jena.

The game was scoreless heading into an extra eighth inning with North Webster’s season on the line. The Knights loaded the bases for Howard, who was hit by a pitch to force in the only run of the game.

With the series tied at one, the series was pushed to a third game and the second one of Saturday afternoon.

The Knights sent Kade Garmany to the mound, and he was impressive. Garmany struck out an incredible 12 batters in just six innings as North Webster took the game 4-2 to advance to the quarterfinals.
