SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - In a season of firsts for the South Callaway Bulldogs, they have a chance to play for one more: first place.

The Bulldogs, appearing in their first-ever Class 2 baseball semifinal, defeated the Clever Blue Jays 5-2 Wednesday at Meador Park. With the victory, South Callaway will play the Valle Catholic Warriors at 4 p.m. Thursday in the championship game.

The Bulldogs (20-5) got a whale of a pitching performance from senior starter Hunter Leeper. He went the distance, allowing two runs on four hits, walking none and striking out 11 Blue Jay batters.
