It’s Alliance and Ogallala for the Juniors B7 Legion Baseball District Championship Tuesday.
Ogallala held off a late Sidney rally Monday evening to advance 8-6, setting up tonight’s finals with undefeated Alliance, which must lose twice in order not to make the State Tournament. Game One is at 5:30 at Bower-Shankland Field and a second game will follow if necessary.
Ogallala scored the first four runs of last night’s elimination game in the opening inning to lead 4-0, then added three more in the third and took a 7-0 lead into the fifth. Sidney scored three in each of the fifth and sixth to make it close and despite the loss, Sidney will be at State as the tournament host.
Alliance has yet to lose in the double-elimination bracket, beating Gering 7-1, Sidney 6-3 and Ogallala 4-2 on its way to Tuesday’s finals.
