BUFORD -- Buford stared down elimination in the Class AA quarterfinals on Tuesday, as the Wolves' baseball team rebounded from an 8-6 loss to Pierce County in Game 1 to post a dominating, 14-2 win in Game 2.

The outcomes mean the best-of-three series will be decided in Game 3, which will begin at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Buford's Gerald McQuaig Field.

Buford and Pierce battled back and forth in Game 1, as the fifth-ranked Bears (26-6) pulled away with the victory in nine innings.

The Wolves (21-11) bounced back in style in Game 2, exploding for 14 runs in six innings.
