For the Boyertown legion team, the fourth time was the charm.

After losing three straight tournament games to Twin Valley over the last two weeks, Boyertown got a win in the game that mattered most.

The Bears beat Twin Valley 11-1 at Bear Stadium on Saturday to win their 23rd state legion championship.

Twin Valley had beaten Boyertown twice in the Region 2 tournament and on Friday night in the state tournament.

Both teams have qualified for the Mid-Atlantic Legion Tournament.

That tournament will be played Aug. 8-12 in Camden, NJ.
