The win, coupled with a South Shelby loss to Palmyra, assured the Panthers of a Clarence Cannon Conference title, the first for the baseball program.
Etzler allowed just 1 hit, and 1 walk while striking out 8 to boost the Centralia record to 6-1 in the CCC.

Centralia finishes the regular season with a road game to Blair Oaks on Friday night, a home game with Kirksville on Saturday and a road game at Hallsville on Monday night.
In the JV contest, Centralia pounded out 8 hits and 13 runs in 5 innings to win 13-7. Logan Armontrout got the win for the Panthers on the mound, Caleb Liegey and Tyler Spurling both had 2 hits to lead the offense.
