COLBY — The Ellis Legion baseball team is headed to the Class AA Zone tournament championship after a pair of wins.

Ellis defeated Plainville/Stockton, 13-0, in four innings, then rallied to knock off top-seeded Goodland, 15-7 on Wednesday.

Ellis put up four runs in the first two innings against Goodland, then fell down 6-4 in the second.

In relief of starter Will Crabill, Cole Pfeifer gave up one run through the next six innings, while Ellis regained the lead.

The win puts Ellis in the 8 p.m. championship game Friday, awaiting its opponent from the elimination bracket in the double-elimination format.
