FORT WAYNE—After defeating Churubusco with a pair of runs in the seventh inning of the sectional semi-final game at Indiana Tech earlier in the day, the Starfires ran out of magic and fell to the hosting Bishop Luers Knights, 6-3 in the title game on Memorial Day evening.
The Knights earned their seventh sectional title and first since 2008 with the win over South Adams who had won 11 straight games up to that point. They had defeated the Bluffton Tigers, 4-2 in the second game of the semi-finals.
