The Southcentral Conference had a good showing at the state baseball championships Thursday in Sitka.

Both Wasilla and Colony won opening-round games against Mid-Alaska Conference teams.

Colony beat MAC champion Lathrop, 6-5, while Wasilla edged West Valley, 5-4. Both teams advance to today’s semifinal round.

Colony, the SCC runner-up, plays Cook Inlet Conference champion South Anchorage at 4 p.m., while SCC champion Wasilla plays either Sitka or Eagle River.

Colony was down 5-1 and rallied late to beat Lathrop, while Wasilla scored single runs in five of the six innings to beat West Valley.

Colony ended Kodiak’s season last week with a 15-10 win in a winner-to-state game at SCC tournament.

In other opening-round games, South beat Juneau-Douglas, 7-6, in 15 innings — the longest game in the history of the state tournament — and Sitka played Eagle River late Thursday.

The championship game is at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
