St. Maria Goretti junior left-hander Anthony Sowers mowed down Maret for six innings.
But when the Frogs started jumping in the seventh, George Everly came to the rescue.
Everly retired the final two batters with the tying run on base to put an end to Maret and save the Gaels' 5-4 victory Saturday in a Maryland B Private Schools State Tournament baseball semifinal game at Municipal Stadium.
It will be the second straight year that Goretti plays in the championship game, which will be at 3 p.m. today at Municipal Stadium. The Gaels (15-10) face The Bullis School, which defeated Washington Waldorf 9-3 in the other semifinal.
Sowers gave up two earned runs and five hits while fanning six batters in 6 1/3 innings to get the win.
