Broken Bow Juniors Conclude Season at State Tournament

The Broken Bow American Legion juniors baseball team saw its season end Sunday at the Class B state tournament as they fell to Hickman in an elimination game 13-5 in six innings.  Hickman jumped out early building a 5-0 lead after three innings then made it 7-0 going into the bottom of the fourth.  Bow tried to fight back scoring a run in the fourth and had a threat going in the fifth as the first three men reached to start the inning.  Eli Coble would come in to score on an RBI single by Max Denson but Bow would only get the one run leaving the bases loaded to end the inning.  Hickman then came up with a big sixth inning sending ten men to the plate and scoring 6 runs.  Broken Bow came back with three in the bottom of the inning but fell one run short of forcing a seventh inning as Hickman collected a 13-5 victory in six innings on the eight run rule.  Max Denson led the team offensively going 2 for 4 with 3 runs batted in.  Also collecting hits were Zach Loy, Owen Hartman, Tayte Thorton and Kayden Record.  The Bow juniors conclude their season at 22-7.
