Beavercreek defeats Fairmont

BEAVERCREEK — The host Beavercreek Beavers claimed a 1-0 win over Kettering Fairmont in extra innings, to take sole possession of first place in the Greater Western Ohio Conference’s Central Division. The two teams are scheduled to play at 5 p.m. today in Kettering, weather permitting. Should Beavercreek win, they’ll clinch the GWOC Central title. But if they lose, they would share the title with Fairmont and potentially Centerville, which needed to defeat Wayne in Huber Heights on Tuesday to stay in the hunt.
