May 19, 1977 Charlie Horner's two-out infield single in the bottom of the seventh inning drives in the winning run and completes Slatington's 4-3 comeback victory over Palmerton. The Bulldogs trail 3-0 entering the final frame but Dennis Mankos starts the rally with a single. John Roberts, who goes 3-for-3 in the contest, follows with an RBI triple and scores on Jeff Wertman's ground out. After Tom Evans reaches base, Ron Breiner's triple ties the game. Horner then delivers his game-winning hit.
