NORTH KNOX 9, North Daviess 5: The Warriors wrapped up the Princeton Round Robin with a come-from-behind win. North Daviess jumped out to a 5-0 lead, before the Warriors rallied with nine unanswered runs over their final three at-bats.


North Knox pulled even in the game with a 5-spot in the home half of the fourth inning before adding three in the fifth and one in the sixth.
