Hanover Area used an eight-run seventh inning to pull away from Northwest for a 10-3 victory in Wyoming Valley Conference Division 3 baseball.

The Hawkeyes improved to 11-0 in league play. A win in any of their final three games or a loss by Meyers in any of the Mohawks’ final three will clinch the division title.

Colin Macko homered for Crestwood.

Wyoming Seminary 16, GAR 4 (5 inn.)
