WIGGINS — It was Senior Night for Stone County Thursday night, but visiting Picayune did all the celebrating.

The Maroon Tide rallied twice in the late innings, pulling out an exciting 9-4 win to clinch the Region 7-5A championship.

Picayune moves to 12-5 overall and ends up 6-3 in league play. The Maroon Tide and Long Beach actually finished in a tie in the league standings, but head coach Cayne Stockstill’s team earned the top seed due to winning two of three games over the Bearcats.
