NORTH PLATTE — The Five Points Bank American Legion baseball team battled the First Nationals (North Platte) team back-and-forth for nine innings in the first round of the Class A, Area 7 tournament, but it was North Platte that had the final say.
First Nationals scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth on a walk-off single by Jack Kenny to take the game 6-5.
"That was tough. You look at the line, they probably deserve to win that," said FPB coach Russ Kindig after the game in a radio interview. "We didn't make enough plays, but we left it all on the field. You have to be happy with that."
