golden chances to score fall

by the wayside in the late innings

Thursday night.

doomed Post 389 in a 2-1

loss to Slayton at Munson

of the first, then took a 2-0

lead in the top of the fifth


Mt. Lake strung together a

threat in the sixth. Ryan Mc-

Cue hit a one-out single and

moved to third on a double

by Adam Watkins. Sam

Grevís sacrifice fly drove in

a run and moved Watkins to

third, but a groundout ended

the threat.

Then, in the seventh, Zach

Spinks reached on an error

with two outs and moved to

third on a single by Brett

Willaby before a pop-out

ended the game.

Jared Willaby took the

tough pitching loss, allowing

two runs on five hits.

He didnít issue a walk and

struck out seven.
