Broken Bow hosted Holdrege Thursday night for a legion baseball juniors and seniors doubleheader. The juniors game was able to be played before the rains came. It was a thrilling game that went back and forth and had to go extra innings to be decided. Broken Bow scored a run in the sixth inning to break a 6-6 tie but Holdrege was able to tie the game with a run in the 7th to force extra innings. Holdrege would score in the top of the 8th to make the score 8-7. Eli Coble led off the bottom of the 8th for Broken Bow with a triple but the next two batters would pop out on the infield and Brice Chaplin flew out to deep left center field to end the game. Coble was perfect at the plate going 5 for 5 with 3 runs scored. Zach Loy also had a multi hit game finishing 2 for 3 with 1 RBI. It was just the second loss of the season for the Bow juniors who are now 8-2 on the season.
The rains then came as they prepared the field for the seniors game. After a weather delay, it was determined that the game would not be able to be played because of field conditions.
It is a busy weekend ahead for the Broken Bow legion teams with juniors / seniors doubleheaders scheduled for Saturday at Imperial and Sunday at Ogallala.
