Helper to play Cyprus for State Championship

Sun Advocate sports reporter

Down to their final outs of the 2013 season, the Helper American Legion baseball team did not go down without a fight.

Helper staged a late game rally scoring four runs in the ninth inning to complete a comeback stunning Stansbury 11-9 on Thursday evening. Stansbury defeated Helper earlier in the week 4-2, sending them to the one-loss bracket.

With the victory over Stansbury, Helper will now play Cyprus today (Aug. 2) at 4 p.m. at Logan High School. If Helper wins, the two teams will play again at 7 p.m. Helper must win both games in order to win the championship.

Cyprus and Helper are no strangers to each other. In three games this season, Helper holds a 2-1 record with Cyprus winning the first game on June 12 (3-2) and Helper winning two games in the Helper Tournament in June (14-5 and 5-3).
