AUSTIN, Texas -- The College Station Cougars rallied in eight innings to beat Lubbock Cooper, 9-8 and will face Argyle for the 3A championship at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Lubbock Cooper would answer with two runs in the sixth to tie the game at 5-5. College Station answered in the bottom of the sixth with two more to regain the lead at 7-5.

In the 7th the Cooper Pirates scored three runs to jump back on top 8-7, only to watch the Cougars score one in the bottom of the 7th to even the game at 8-8.

In the 8th College Station's Matthew Bennett delivered the game winner. His base hit sent Ryan Johnson home with the winning run.
