HAZLETON — Hazleton Area pulled off another unconventional win in a season full of them Thursday. And because of it, the Cougars will have a chance to swoop in and snag a division title at the end of the season for a second straight year.


This time it was a 1-0 win over Pittston Area in a game that featured dueling one-hitters. The Cougars’ Joey Baran and Sal Biasi matched the Patriots’ Michael Schwab with stellar performances.


The Cougars (9-5) took advantage of two errors in the fourth inning to score the game’s lone run. Baran struck out 11 in six innings and Biasi fanned two in the seventh for the save.


Schwab went the distance for the Patriots (3-10), striking out nine. Hazleton Area’s Kyle Klein and Pittston Area’s Justin Martinelli had the game’s only hits.


Hazleton Area and Wyoming Valley West both trail Berwick for the Division 1 lead by just one game with one left to play. The Cougars host Berwick on Monday while the Spartans play at Pittston Area.


Coughlin 12, Berwick 2


The Crusaders (7-6) racked up 16 hits in a decisive five-inning victory, preventing the Bulldogs from wrapping up the Division 1 title.


Coughlin’s Sam Andrews (two RBI) and Dave Marriggi (double, RBI) led the way with three hits apiece. Kyle Lupas (double) and Eric Adamczyk both knocked in two runs. Josh Featherman struck out six for the win.


Jordan Stout had two RBI for the Bulldogs (10-4).
