On Friday, Cooper and Liberty Hill elected to play a one-game playoff today in the regional semi-final round.
The Pirates jumped out to a six run lead in the top of the third and pitcher Tanner Doucette protected that with a strikeout of Cody Remore.
Then in the fourth, Cooper got another run after A.J. Perez hit into a fielder's choice, Cooper 7-0.
They proved good things do come to those who wait as they went on to win 8-2 to return to the regional finals.
