Cardinals season ends in WBA loss to Eau Claire Bears
Unfortunately, a return trip to the state finals was cut short by the Eau Claire Bears on Sunday in Haugen. Spooner jumped out to a 4-1 lead through two innings but could not push across another run off Bears reliever, Chevy Tollefson. Spooner committed four errors which led to three unearned runs on the day. Jeremy Bloomquist pitched well enough to win but did not get the help at crucial times from his defense. Chad Patko hit his second home run of the weekend to lead the offense, which only mustered seven hits on the day. The Bears won in comeback fashion by chipping away, as many good teams do, at the Spooner lead. Eau Claire had an even larger comeback the night before against Spring Valley to win 10-8.
Spooner ends the memorable 2018 season with a record of 13-5 (8-1 Indy) and an outright league title by two games. Haugen advanced to state with victories over Tony and Prescott on the weekend.
Thank you to all of our tremendous supporters in 2018! The list includes many folks but we especially want to thank the families and volunteers who make the season run as smooth as possible!
