The win secures a berth in the championship round and a rematch with Conococheague on Thursday, beginning at 5:30 p.m. “We did not play a good game on Sunday,” Maugansville manager Phil Daniels said. “Gave up a lot of errors early, but this team has a lot of heart.” Heart was all Maugansville could depend on in the early going.
