Mar. 25—The Brunswick High Pirates tied the board with a 1-0 victory in its second game against the Glynn Academy Terrors Wednesday night after a rough start to the three-game crosstown baseball matchup.

Brunswick High struggled to get any offense going in Game 1 of the three-game series against rival Glynn Academy in Wainwright Field on Monday as they fell 12-1. The Pirates hosted the Terrors on their home turf, Bud Couch Field on BHS' campus, in the second game and successfully evened up the score and forced a third game to decide the series.

That leaves the City Championship title up for grabs as the teams face off for the final game in the series tomorrow at 6 p.m. in Wainwright Field.

After Wednesday's game, BHS stands with an overall season of 9-6. A good early season led to a 2-1 win in the three-game regional series against Richmond Hill and a subsequent 1-2 loss in a three-game contest with Statesboro's Blue Devils.

Last night's game leaves the Terrors with a 10-5 season. After a 4-3 run in non-regional games, Glynn Academy's team claimed victory over South Effingham High School and Richmond Hill High School leading up to this week's hometown rivalry series.
