'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Springdale spent the home half of the seventh inning running around the bases Wednesday afternoon. Then, the Dynamos walked off with the victory.

A fierce, last-inning rally propelled Springdale to a 4-3 nonsection victory over Cornell.

Down, 3-0, heading to the bottom of the seventh, the host Dynamos (6-7) scored four runs to topple Cornell (3-14). After a run scored on an error, Austin Tocco had an RBI double, and Austin Kline singled home a run before Adam Lock's single scored Brandon Stiehler for the win. Winning pitcher Alex Demonte struck out 10 for the Dynamos, who have qualified for the WPIAL Class A playoffs.

Burrell 5, Valley 1 — Alex Krnarcik's complete-game effort helped Burrell (8-8) defeat Valley (3-12) in nonsection play. For the Bucs, Zack Abel and Cory Arabia doubled.

Ford City 7, Kittanning 1 — Justin Retzer struck out 10 in a complete-game win for Ford City (8-7) in a nonsection game against rival Kittanning (3-13). Mike Fennell and Caleb Zablocki each drove in two runs for the Sabers.

Knoch 7, Kiski Area 5 — Knoch (9-9) rallied from a 5-1 deficit to beat the Cavaliers (4-13) in non-section play. Justin Stascak doubled and had two RBI for Kiski Area.

Riverview 13, Eden Christian 0 (5 inn.) — Kevin Gray doubled, tripled, scored three times and drove in three runs to lead Class A No. 2 Riverview (14-2) to the nonsection home win.

St. Joseph 9, Jeannette 5 — Brendan O'Hara went 3 for 3 with two RBI to pace St. Joseph (3-13) in a nonsection win over Jeannette (8-8). Joey Luciana added a double for the Spartans.

Softball

Freeport 10, Riverview 0 (5 inn.) — Ashley Sample had three hits and two RBI, and pitcher Alyssa Meta tossed a two-hit shutout with seven strikeouts as Class AA Freeport (11-6) downed Class A Riverview (11-7) in a nonsection game between local playoff teams.

Valley 8, Highlands 7 — An eight-run outburst in the top of the second, led by two-run homers by Hannah Kantorski and Blaise Dawson, were enough for Valley (5-11) to secure a nonsection victory over Highlands (8-6). Cassidy Runyan hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth for Highlands.

Burrell 9, Indiana 4 — Claire Fisher struck out eight as Class AA No. 5 Burrell (14-4) defeated Class AAA Indiana (8-10) in a nonsection game. Abby Nitowski had three hits, including an RBI double, and Krista York hit a two-run double for Burrell.
