TOWNSEND-The Leland and Gray Rebels moved past the Lake Region girls in the semi-finals by the slimmest of margins, a 3-2 win in Townsend. Lake Region out hit Leland and Gray 7-4 but an early passed ball with no cover at home, single tallies from a three walk inning, and the only extra base hit recorded by the Rebels, gave the home team a 3-0 lead.
