In Fredericksburg, Exeter did not fare much better in the District III-AAAA third place game, falling to Red Land 3-2 in 9 innings. The Eagles missed the state tournament by one spot.
The Berks Catholic baseball team will have to wait until Friday to play the District III-AA championship game. The Saints will meet Susquenita at 4:30 at Santander Stadium in York. The game was rained out on Thursday.
