The Ellis American Legion scored three runs with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Colby 3-2 in the zone tournament finals Saturday afternoon in Goodland. The win was the second straight over Colby and moves Ellis to the AA state tournament next week in Pratt.

Colby scored in the second than added an insurance run in the top of the seventh.

Ellis tallied their first run on a hit batter with the bases loaded. Nathan Frame stole home to tally the second run. They score the game winner off a rundown after the batter pulled back on a two-strike bunt attempt.
