The No. 1-ranked Babylon Panthers (20-0) earned an 8-7 victory over No. 3-seeded Center Moriches on May 29 to remain undefeated and earn their third straight Suffolk Class B title.
    
Babylon's junior power slugger Brianna Goodfellow went 4-for-4, including a two-run homer in the fourth, and senior pitcher Tiana Giuliano (17-0) struck out the final batter with runners on second and third in the bottom of the seventh to secure the win.      

Giuliano has a team-high 17 victories this season, including two dazzling playoff performances in the circle. In Game One of the championship series, she notched 12 strikeouts and scattered just three hits to lead her team to a 2-0 victory, and she brought her A-game again in Game Two.
    
The Panthers advance to play the Nassau County champ, No. 1-seeded Carle Place, in a Super Regional semifinal on June 5 at 1 p.m. in Rhinebeck, N.Y.
