Coach Kory Foss said: “In game one I though Kameron did a nice job. He’s had a couple of tough luck losses lately where he’s thrown well but our offense hasn’t been able to put up any runs. Our defense played well but we still couldn’t get any momentum going at the plate.
“Game 2 started well and Evan looked good on the mound but the storm hit and there was no way we were going to be able to finish the game. I told the kids to take the good from these games and leave the bad behind us as we enter into the final stretch of our schedule leading up to the state tournament,” said Foss.
Winner will play on Friday, July 27 in Warner vs. Warner/Ipswich/Northwestern followed by one against Wessington Springs.
