METROPOLIS -- Chase Niemeyer went 3-for-3 and scored three runs to lead the Marion Junior High School baseball team to a 15-0 five-inning win over Eldorado on Wednesday in the semifinals of the SIJHSAA Class L Massac Regional.

MJHS scored six runs in the first inning, a rally that included two-run singles by Brody Larson and Chandler McReaken.

The Wildcats added three in the second, then plated six in the fourth with Nehemiah Goodman's RIB triple being the biggest blow.

Evan Noelle pitched three no-hit innings with four strikeouts to get the win.

Marion is now 15-2 and plays in the championship game Friday at noon against Harrisburg.
