PEARL â€“ The Eupora Eagles entered the postseason as the third best team in their division.
They fought and climbed their way to being one of the final two squads standing in Class 2A baseball.
The final series was a tough challenge and in the end, Eupora saw its season end with a 7-1 loss to Taylorsville in the second game of the state championship series.
Even with the loss, coach Brad Mitchell knew the Eagles fought, but just came up short to an outstanding opponent.
â€śIt was great,â€ť Mitchell said. â€śIt was fun to be a part of. These guys battled. (We) just didnâ€™t play very well at the end, but that isnâ€™t taking anything away from Taylorsville. They are a good team. They deserved it. Our guys donâ€™t need to feel they didnâ€™t deserve to be here because they battled their tails off and I couldnâ€™t be prouder of them.â€ť
