A historic season for East Fairmont softball came to an end on Wednesday night, as the Bees fell to Petersburg, 18-8.
East trailed 10-4 in the sixth inning but rallied to close the gap to within two going into the seventh. However, the Vikings tacked on 8 runs in the top of the frame and the Bees had no answer in the bottom of the seventh.
East Fairmont won the Region I Section II title to advance to the Region 1 final for the first time since 2014. The Bees graduate 8 seniors, but will return the majority of their starting lineup.
The Bees fell in walk-off fashion, 5-4, in game 1 on Tuesday.
