CALDWELL, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The Glenns Ferry Pilots scored 49 runs in three games Friday to punch their ticket to the 1A state championship game.

The Pilots beat Genesee in their first game Friday, 16-5. Glenns Ferry then beat Potlatch, 19-8 before edging out Notus, 14-9 to advance to the first state title game in school history.

“It’s insane, I don’t even know how to feel,” said pitcher Madi Fink. “I’m kind of in shock still, so I don’t even know.”

“We haven’t ever been there, so it’s pretty sweet,” said Athletic Director and Assistant Coach Kelli McHone.

The Pilots will play at 2 p.m. Saturday in the championship game.

Since the Pilots are in the winner’s bracket, if they lose in the championship game, they will get a rematch at 4 p.m.

At the 3A ranks, Sawtooth Central Idaho Conference rivals met up once again Friday.

After Filer and Gooding both won their first games, they met in a winner’s bracket game.
