Fatima upsets top-seeded Borgia

FULTON — Fatima had an answer. Every single time.

Whenever St. Francis Borgia looked poised to seize the momentum, Fatima was there to steal it right back.

All the answers — a homer from an unlikely source, a rally-killing double play, a game-winning insurance run, a timely pitching change — added up to a stunning 3-2 victory for the fourth-seeded Comets over the top-seeded Knights in a Class 3 District 8 semifinal on Monday.

“Any time you can knock the No. 1 seed off in a one-run ball game, you’re doing something right,” Fatima coach Scott Kilgore said. “That spoke loud.
