The playoff run for the

Mt. Lake Legion Post 389

baseball team ended before it

could really get going Thursday

night in Welcome.

Mt. Lake tried to rebound

from an early deficit, but the

rally fell short in a 7-3 loss

to Welcome-Sherburn in the

Sub-District B play-in game

at Welcome.

W-S advanced to the subdistrict

semifinals with the

win, while Mt. Lake was

eliminated with the loss.

W-S scored twice in the

third inning, then plated

four runs in the fourth to

take a 6-0 lead.

Mt. Lake tried to mount

a rally. With two outs in the

fifth, Levi Jahnke drew a

walk and Levi Stoesz hit an

RBI double.

Then, in the sixth, Mt.

Lake loaded the bases with

no outs. Back-to-back strikeouts

threatened to stifle the

rally, but Drake Harder hit

a two-run single. However,

a strikeout ended the threat

with two runners on base in

the sixth, and Mt. Lake was

unable to push a run across

in the seventh.

Stoesz led Mt. Lake with

three hits. Derek Harder

added a pair of hits.

Jared Willaby took the

pitching loss, working the

first four innings.

W-S defeated Springfield

in the semifinals before

falling to Jackson in the

sub-district championship

game. Teams advancing to

districts were Jackson, W-S

and Springfield.
