The New Orleans Boosters defeated Martella’s Pharmacy of Johnstown 7-2 on Friday night at Point Stadium to earn the franchise’s 26th trip to the AAABA Tournament championship game.
New Orleans (5-0) has won 14 AAABA Tournament titles and finished as runner-up 11 times.
Martella’s Pharmacy won Pool C and opened 4-0 in the tournament before falling just shy of the final.
The Boosters still will be playing a Johnstown representative in the championship game.
Paul Carpenter Capital Advisors, the Johnstown-2 team, will play the Boosters at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Point Stadium.
Paul Carpenter defeated the defending champion Zanesville Junior Pioneers 8-7 in the other semifinal on Friday.
Last year, Paul Carpenter finished as the national runner-up and will make its second straight title game appearance.
