Jake Bufo did it all - with his arm and with his glove - on the mound Monday to get Conestoga a 3-2 win over Seneca Valley in the PIAA Class AAAA baseball semifinals at Greene Township Park in Scotland, Franklin County.

Bufo snagged a line drive with the bases loaded to end the third inning. In the fifth inning, an overthrow went past the catcher, and Bufo covered home and tagged the runner for an out.

Bufo allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings.

Andrew Born ripped a two-run single in the second for Conestoga.

Born's brother, Stephen, doubled and scored a run on Andrew Turner's base hit.
