Blairsville Kovacik Insurance clinched the Indiana County (Region 7) regular season title with a 5-3 win over Indiana Legion today. Blairsville, 14-5 in the league and 14-7 overall, is playing its first season after a 3-year hiatus. Manager Bob Thompson's team will open the playoffs on Thursday at WyoTech Field in Blairsville against an opponent that is yet to be determined.
The remaining three playoff spots are still up in the air. Creps United has the inside track for one of those spots with a 9-7 record. Homer City Post 493 (9-9), last year's league champion and Region 7 runner up, remains in the thick of things despite an up and down season. Marion Center (8-10) is riding a three game winning streak on its late season surge for a playoff spot. Indiana Legion (8-10) has cooled off recently, but has two games remaining with in-town rival Creps United. And, Young Township remains mathematically alive heading into the last week of the regular season.
