Season Ends For Chadron FNBO Seniors; Sheridan County In Elimination Bracket


       The season came to an end Sunday for the Chadron FNBO Senior Nationals as they lost to Gering 4-1 in an elimination game at the American Legion B7 area tournament.

      In Sunday’s other game, Alliance shutout host Ogallala 5-0 to advance to the Championship Game Tuesday at 5:30. Alliance has yet to give up a run after shutting out Chadron 8-0 on Friday and having a bye on Saturday.

      Alliance will play the winner of tonight’s 6:00 game between Ogallala and Gering, who also met on Saturday with Ogallala winning 10-2.

     The Sheridan County Security First Regulators will have to come back through the elimination bracket to win the C7 Area Tournament after losing 7-5 to Valentine on Sunday.

     The Regulators, the tournament host, had only 4 hits and scored all 5 of their runs in the 2nd inning to take a 5-3 lead, but Valentine scored 4 times in the 4th for the win.

     Valentine advances to Tuesday’s championship game while Sheridan County plays Imperial Monday night at 6:00 at the Modisett Ball Park In Rushville. Imperial eliminated Bridgeport 15-7 Sunday after losing to the Regulator 13-5 on Saturday.
