A pair of state championship contenders faced off Monday on the prep diamond. St. Joseph has 12 wins this season, Northwest Rankin 14.
The Bruins scored 1 run in the 2nd inning and 2 in the 3rd, holding off the Cougars 3-1.
St. Joe looks for a return trip to the 2A finals later this summer, while NWR is one of many challengers in a loaded 6A field.
