The Broken Bow American Legion juniors baseball team improved to 3-0 shutting out Ogallala 7-0 Monday night. Austin Harvey and Eli Coble combined on the shutout.

Bow scored their 7 runs on 7 hits. Zach Loy was 2 for 2 with a run scored and an RBI. Also collecting hits were Eli Coble, Caden Holm, Max Denson, Brice Chaplin, and Kaden McKean.
The Broken Bow American Legion seniors dropped their second in a row falling to the Ogallala seniors. Ogallala jumped out quickly scoring 6 runs in their first at bat but Bow would respond by scoring 4 runs in the bottom of the first. Neither team would score again until Ogallala lengthened their lead with 3 runs in the top of the 6th to make the score 9-4. Once again, Broken Bow would respond scoring two in the bottom of the inning to get to within 3 going to the last inning. That’s as close as Broken Bow would get though as Ogallala held on to win 9-6. Bow scored their 6 runs on 5 hits led by Eli Coble who finished 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored. The Bow Seniors are now 1-2 on the season.
