PINE GROVE – If last night's District 11 Class A semifinal between Marian and Williams Valley needed an advertising slogan, "It's Miller Time" would probably be a suitable choice.

No, Miller Brewing Company had no part in any kind of sponsorship deals at Pine Grove's Stump Stadium.

Rather, it was Williams Valley's Codie Miller that trademarked an 8-3 victory over the Colts, which sends the Vikings (18-4) to next Tuesday's District 11 Class A Championship game against Tri-Valley at Coca Cola Park in Allentown (which bares the naming rights of another famous beverage company).

Five races into the 2013 season and Eric Beers of Northampton is off to a fantastic start as he won his second straight feature and third of the year. Fresh off a 100-lap victory, Beers was able to move to the lead after a lap 18 restart and then withstood numerous attempts by Roger Coss to earn the $1800 victory.

"It's a lot of luck and right now we have luck on our side and hope it stays there," said Beers.

Coss never gave Beers much breathing room as he tried several times, specifically after a few restarts, to make his way by.
