DEFIANCE - Antwerp used the pitching of Jacob Savina to stay alive in the ACME sectional tournament with a 6-1 win over Wayne Trace.

Savina had a no-hitter going until the sixth and finished with a two-hitter. The right-hander struck out eight, allowing just three base runners before giving up the lone Wayne Trace run in the seventh.

Blake Schuette hit a single and double to pace a seven-hit attack for Antwerp, which had lost to Fairview to fall into the losers’ bracket of the double elimination tournament. Hunter Sproles added a triple and scored a pair of runs for the Archers with Dylan Hines, Chase Clark and Parker Moore each producing a single.

Jayden Molitor had an RBI single in the seventh for Wayne Trace, which saw its ACME summer season come to a close.
