The Spartans have a chance to win its first South Puget Sound League 2A title since 1985.

Sumner beat league rival White River Hornets last night in 10 innings.

The 2-0 win put the Spartans ahead of the Hornets. Sumner sits in first place in the 2A with a 12-1 league record and an 16-1 overall record.

Helping the Spartans to victory Tuesday was pitcher Christian Parsons.

Parsons threw in all 10 innings with a total of 128 pitches.

He gave up no runs, struck out 13 and allowed only six hits the whole game.

The game was tied at 0 until the top of the 10th when Chase Torgison doubled and scored Tysen Fischlin from second.

Luc Powers-Hubbard also had an RBI with a double securing Sumner’s lead over White River.

The Spartans and Hornets meet up again today at 4 p.m. at Sumner High School.

Sumner must win this game to clinch the title.
