GEORGETOWN -- Sussex Tech baseball is headed back to the state tournament semifinals on Saturday after the Ravens rallied twice to defeat A.I. duPont.
Tech, which went to the semis two seasons ago, scored the winning run in the sixth when senior Jacob Williams scored on a wild pitch after leading off the inning with a single. The Ravens got an insurance run later in the frame thanks to junior Nathan Justis' RBI base hit that scored sophomore Nick Bennett.
Williams, who came on in relief in the sixth with the game tied 4-4 and a runner on with no outs, worked two scoreless innings to pick up the win.
"I love pitching in high pressure situations and there was definitely some pressure then," said Williams, who made only one appearance in relief this season for the Ravens.
With Tech trailing in the bottom half of the fifth after the Tigers broke a scoreless tie with a two-run homer, the Ravens plated four scores in their at bat. Junior catcher Ryan Muchmore did most of the damage in the rally with a two-out, three-run homer to left-center.
"He gave me a fastball belt high," Muchmore said of the pitch he drove over the fence.
Earlier in the day, No. 13 Milford punched its ticket to the semifinals, where it will meet defending state champion Caravel, with a 17-6 rout of No. 12 Red Lion.
