They say good pitching always beats good hitting. That has held true for the Topsail Pirates as they advanced to the 3A State Championship series after beating South Johnston 3-1.
Pirate starter Trent Hansley struck out 12 Trojans over seven innings as Topsail took the best of three series 2-0.
Topsail now waits to see who they will play in the State Championship. It will either be Burns or Piedmont.
