WHITING | Every time Danny Pobereyko came to the plate in a big situation for Bishop Noll on Thursday night, he came through for the Warriors.

Pobereyko doubled to left field in the fourth inning to put the Times No. 6 Warriors ahead for good, and he drove home two insurance runs in the fifth with a single in Bishop Noll’s 9-1 over Whiting in a Class 2A sectional action at Oil City Stadium.

The Warriors (23-3) will play Wheeler in today’s semifinal. The Bearcats advanced to the semifinal with a 29-1 win over Bowman Academy.

Pobereyko, who tossed a six-hitter while striking out nine, finished 2-for-3 with three runs driven in at the plate.

Bishop Noll tied the game in the fourth when a Whiting throwing error allowed Larry Crisler to score. Pobereyko’s double put the Warriors ahead for good, and Angel Figueroa made it 3-1 with a single.

The Warriors added two runs in the fourth and scored four more in the sixth.

Crisler had a double and a triple and scored two runs.

A.J. Veloz put Whiting (13-12-1) ahead with a run-scoring single in the third.

In the early game, Wheeler sent 24 hitters and scored 18 runs in the third inning against Bowman.

Holding a 6-1 lead entering the third, the first 14 Bearcats (14-13) reached base. Sam Bolla drilled a two-run single to center, and Riley Smith later added a bases-clearing double to push the lead to 15-1.

“We were doing some things, taking advantage of their mistakes,” said Wheeler coach Josh Long. “Give credit to the kids. We put the ball in play, and that’s hard to do sometimes.”

Wheeler had 12 different players drive in runs in the inning.

For the game, Smith was 4-for-4 and drove in four runs. Crussen and C.J. Wodetzki each added three hits.

The Bearcats pounded out 19 hits and took advantage of nine Bowman errors.

Jake LaFever allowed three hits and one unearned run on the mound. He issued one walk and struck out 12 Eagles.

Bowman took a 1-0 lead in the first after Maurice Phillips and Terrance Harris had back-to-back singles. Phillips stole third and scored on a throwing error.

Harris had two hits for Bowman.
