MABEN – Postseason games are always intense.
Add in the fact that the two teams playing are cross-county rivals and the ante goes up.
That was exactly the case as Eupora and East Webster faced off Thursday evening for game one of the Class 2A North Championship Series.
The ballgame was nothing short of hard fought and in the end, it was Eupora securing a 10-4 victory.
“They are a good ball team,” Eagles coach Brad Mitchell said. “We knew if they made mistakes we had to capitalize on it and we did that. Our pitchers pounded the zone, stuck with the game plan, played defense and put the ball in play.”
