For many of those gathered at City Park in Perryville to watch Friday's Class 3, District 1 championship game between Perryville and Notre Dame, it seemed like the Pirates, who were leading 3-0 after six innings, were going to roll right over Notre Dame on their way to sectionals.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, the wheels fell off.

Notre Dame (26-5) scored 4 runs on 3 hits, 2 errors and a hit batsman to rally for a 4-3 victory and a trip to the sectional round. Perryville (19-9) is now 3-13 overall and 1-4 in postseason play against Notre Dame.
