West Point replicated another dramatic performance, and in doing so, captured the Dodge County Fair baseball title with a 5-4 win over Wahoo Sunday afternoon at the Hog Yard in Scribner.
In what was a rematch of the DCBL title game, the Bombers are now 2-for-2 in championship finals this summer. West Point captured one-run wins in both games.
And once again, it was a Bomber run in the final inning that lifted West Point to a dramatic win.
West Point found themselves in some early trouble as Wahoo took a 4-0 lead. In a hole, the Bombers rallied for five consecutive runs.
A much-needed spark for the Bombers came in the 5th inning when West Point produced four runs. That surge of runs tied up the game at 4-4.
“Wahoo was kind of out of character a little bit with some errors, but Joey [Guenther] just kept telling us to keep grinding and not give up,” Bomber Nate Bruning said about the team manager urging them to continue to fight.
