This year’s Senior Night at East Ascension will be memorable for both the Spartans and the Griffins, as the Ascension Parish rivals capped a fiercely competitive series with an exhilarating shootout.

The two teams played well into the night as they went back and forth in a 10-inning affair that ultimately ended in an 8-7 Spartans victory.

East Ascension (16-18, 5-10 in District 6-5A) was able to get a game back from Dutchtown (25-10, 9-6) as the Griffins had claimed an 8-7 win in eight innings Monday night in Geismar.
