Big win helps FPB go 2-2 at tourney
The "old" ball field had one last cherished memory to save on Sunday afternoon.
Hastings Five Points Bank upset Papillion-La Vista South 4-3 in the last game of the Johnny Hopp Tournament, which also marked the team's last game at Duncan Field before it will undergo major reconstruction for next summer.
The win also saw a pair of heroic efforts from a couple of veteran players in their last home game.
Starting pitcher Kyle Goldenstein worked six innings, giving up three runs on three hits while striking out three Papio batters, and Matt Karloff provided a clutch two-out, two-RBI double in the third inning to give Hastings the lead for good.
"For Goldenstein to go out and pitch the way he did and for us to play in the clutch, I'm just really proud of the effort and energy, said coach Steve Illingworth.
