SULPHUR, La. (KPLC) - The Rosepine Eagles came from behind in their 9-5 semifinal victory over No. 3 Mangham to punch their ticket to the Class 2A state title game on Friday. The win sends Rosepine to its first-ever championship game appearance in program history.

Mangham jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning, before the Eagles would respond with five runs in the bottom of the inning. Braden Trull recorded an RBI double to tie the game at three before Brady Phelps followed with an RBI double to give the Eagles their first lead of the day, one they wouldn’t lose.
