Roanoke Post 3 rallied for a 10-9 win over Big Island in the American Legion District 9 championship Tuesday night at Kiwanis Field in Salem.

Roanoke had suffered its first loss earlier Tuesday to the Big Island squad, forcing the rematch for the title. Roanoke advances to the Legion state tournament in Lynchburg next week.
