Justin Vought pushed the lead to 3-0 in the 4th inning with one swing of the bat, launching a two-run home run to left. The Spartans iced the win in the 5th when they strung together three hits and a hit batter to build a 5-0 lead.

Yankosky and Ryan Hogan led the Spartans' offense with two hits and a double each. Wyoming Valley West moves to Friday's AAAA state final against the winner of today's Shaler vs. North Penn semifinal that was delayed a day by weather.
