Rockford Christian’s baseball team is one more step closer to a return trip to Peoria. The Royals Lions defeated Aurora Marmion 2-1 Wednesday at the 3A Rochelle Sectionals.
Nolan Gazouski limited Marmion to one run in six innings of work. He also had a long, RBI double off the fence in centerfield in the first inning.
Alec Powell pitched the seventh inning and closed the door on the win.
The Royal Lions will return to Rochelle at 10 a.m. Saturday morning for the Sectional Championship game against the winner of Thursday’s game between Rock Falls and Sycamore.
