Bellefonte used a five-run first inning to race ahead and never looked back in the championship game of the Area 5 VFW 13-14-year-old Teener Tournament on Sunday.
Bellefonte pounded out 11 hits to back the strong pitching of Adam Armstrong for a 9-5 victory over Mount Union at the State College Teener Fields.
The win sends Bellefonte to the state tournament, which begins Friday for eight teams in a double-elimination setup in Clearfield.
Armstrong struck out eight and allowed five hits.
Never miss a local story.
Caden Lucas led the offense with an RBI single as part of that five-run first inning and added an RBI double in the third.
