The team coached by Ron Frauenshuh heads into regional tournament this week in Web- ster, SD. The team's first game in the regional tourney is against Britton, SD at noon today, Tuesday, Aug. 2. Earlier this season the team traveled to Redfield, SD and took second place in the Redfield tournament. The team jumped out to a three run lead against Ellendale, ND and never looked back defeating Ellendale 29-2. A strong pitching performance by Riley Blake, and solid fielding by Paul Sitter and Jackson Athey sealed the win. The team's second opponent was Redfield, SD and Big Stone Lake Area VFW soundly defeated Redfield 17-2 behind the sound pitching performance by Isaac Cloos and Aaron Quinn. The team was led by David Moberg who had a home run and double, Logan Nordley who went three for four and Quincy Swenson who went two for four. The championship game was played against Mount Vernon whose pitcher received the most valuable player of the tournament, allowing only one run in the tournament. Nate Nelson and Jason Montoyne provided a strong de- fense for the Big Stone Lake Area VFW team as they lost 8-1. On Monday night the team traveled to Clear Lake, SD. In the first game, Logan Nordley had two triples and two singles and Aaron Quinn got on base four times. Defensively the team had a solid defense with plays at first base from Tanner Taffe and solid outfield performances by Ben Valek and Joe Larson. The final score was 12-9. In the nightcap, by a strong pitching performance of Tony Schake who pitched four innings of one-hit baseball led the team in clutch hitting by Isaac Cloos and Tanner Taffe led the team to a 10-4 win. In the final two contest of the sea- son, the Big Stone Lake Area VFW team took on Sisseton, SD with a score of 13-3. Sound pitching from Aaron Quinn and Tanner Taffe. A key hit in the game came from Joe Larson who hit a double with bases loaded clearing the bases. The second game saw Riley Blake and Isaac Cloos allow only two runs with sound defense from Nate Nelson Rox season ends with loss to Canby last Saturday, 7-4 In a very disappointing game, the Ortonville Rex were defeated by the Canby Knights by the score of 7-4 Sat- urday afternoon at Rosen. In a game that was put in question by a wet field, the game finally got going about 5 p.m. instead of 2 p.m. The Rex got off to a good start by scoring three runs in the bottom of the second to take a 3-0 lead. The score didn't change until the top of the sixth when Canby picked up a run. The Rex matched that run in the bottom of the sixth with a run of their own. Then the disastrous eighth inning came when the Rex gave up five runs on no hits and no errors. The pitchers could not find the strike zone and walked six and hit one in the inning. There were also two fielder choices that did not record an out. Canby added one more run in the ninth to make the final 7-4. "This is the most difficult loss I've ever been associated with. To give up seven runs on two hits and only one error is unheard of," stated Manager Ron Thomas. The losing pitcher was Chris Fel- lows who had a no-hitter after five in- nings and gave up his only hit in the sixth inning. Joe Fuller finished up on the mound and allowed one run on one hit. "We really had a great season. Hopefully we can continue to play this well next year and then have some suc- cess in the playoffs. We have been in the region tournament four consecutive years and hopefully we can start an- other streak next year," stated Thomas. Leading hitters on the day were Chris Fellows and Matt Fellows with two each. Riley Sammon, Jeff Watson, Chance Haugen and Zach Giese each had a hit. The team would like to thank all the fans who came down to Rosen and watched the game on Saturday. Their support has been good all year, but it was exceptional on Saturday. Chris Fellows was drafted by Canby and Riley Sammon was drafted by Rosen and they will compete in Region 9C Tournament starting this Friday night in Wheaten.
