Two days of play have been completed in the Region 7 Tournament being held in Clearfield. The tournament's opening day on Saturday saw a couple of closely contested games. In game 1, Beech Creek of the Central Penn League topped Indiana of the Indiana County League 3-2. The day's lone lopsided score came in the second game when Cambria County rep Bedford topped District 31 champion Unity 14-1 in seven innings. Claysburg kept the Cambria's winning ways going with a 9-5 win over District 31 rep Murrysville in game 3. The final game of the day saw the host Clearfield top Indiana County regular season champion Blairsville 5-4.
Indiana County's representatives did not fare much better on Sunday. In the day's opener, Indiana was eliminated by Murrysville by a score of 14-4 in seven innings. Unity, bouncing back after a tough opening loss, advanced over Blairsville by a 9-3 margin. Claysburg moved onto the winner's bracket final with a hard fought 7-6 win over Beech Creek. In game 8, Bedford topped Clearfield 9-6.
On Monday, the remaining six teams will square off. In the loser's bracket contests, Beech Creek will take on Unity and Murrysville will play Clearfield. The winner's bracket final will feature both Cambria County teams as Claysburg takes on Bedford. Claysburg topped Bedford 15-5 in the league title game.
