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 Ch ristian 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.
