No York late heroics needed this time.

Not the way Brooke Bandy was throwing.

Two days after the Dukes stunned Trinity with a seventh-inning rally, Bandy struck out seven to pitch York past Sandburg 8-1 in Monday's Class 4A Rosemont supersectional.

York (23-14), advancing to its second appearance at state -- the first came in 2003 -- will play Minooka in a 5:30 p.m. Friday semifinal in East Peoria.

Isabella Jaeger homered in the first for the Dukes, but Sandburg answered with a run in its half and it was 1-1 until the fourth.

In that inning Abby Solem doubled off the fence in left, Sarah Milkowski singled and Gracie Sullivan broke the tie with a sacrifice fly. Taylor Pankau followed with an RBI single, making it 3-1. The Dukes added a run in the fifth on Solem's RBI single, then broke it open in the seventh with an Angela Scalzitti RBI single and a Sullivan bases-loaded triple.
