Lisbon lefty, Griffin Walker, held the Bulldogs in check through four-plus innings, but five hits and a pair of costly errors led to a seven-run Brocton explosion in the bottom of the fifth that sunk the Golden Knights and ended their Cinderella season and first-ever trip to a State Final 4 in school history.
