MACON, GA -- A stolen base helped score the game's only run as West Laurens knocked off defending-state champion FPD 1-0 on the road.

Scoreless in the top of the fifth inning with a runner on second, a wild pitch sent runner Payten Strickland to third eventually crossing home plate in the same sequence.

FPD was held scoreless the rest of the game.

West Laurens travels to Veterans on Friday while FPD travels to Veterans next Tuesday.
