Countryside rallied from an early deficit Monday to earn a rare victory in the series against Palm Harbor University, and the Cougars' 6-4 victory sets up a logjam atop the North division of the conference.

If Seminole beats PHU on Tuesday night, the Warhawks will represent the North in the conference championship game. A Hurricanes win sets up a three-way tie with Seminole and Countryside.

The Cougars trailed 4-1 on Monday before scoring three runs in the fifth and two in the sixth inning to take the lead for good. Samantha Sharpe ignited the rally with a triple in the fifth inning.
