Tyler Henderson led off the inning with a single. Corey Armstrong was next and drew a walk. Thomason took a two-strike pitch from Junger to right field scoring Henderson.

Sweatt doubled down the third base line with two out to score Corey Armstrong and Thomason for a pair of insurance runs.

Sweatt admitted it was probably the best game of his high school career at the plate.

After drilling a fastball for his first double he turned on a Junger curveball for his second double.

Donofro struck out the side in the Niceville fifth inning. The Eagles threatened in the sixth inning as they loaded the bases on a pair of walks and a base hit. Donofro got out of the jam by striking out pinch hitter Zack Shield.

Engle walked to lead off the Niceville seventh, but three fly ball outs to the outfield sealed the win for the Bulldogs.

“It feels better than any other feeling I’ve ever had,” Donofro said. “This was our goal (to make the playoffs) from the beginning (of the season). We knew we had a chance this year and we are getting it done.
