The Cherokee Little League 12U All Stars season came to an end late Friday night with a 13 to 2 loss to Baxter Springs in the State Semifinal.
Facing the tournament’s host team, the game was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. but the early game ran long and went into an extra inning. It was nearly 9 p.m. before Baxter and Cherokee ran onto Wayne Metcalf Field.
Baxter took a big lead early – 10 to 2 after 3 innings – but Cherokee held on and forced Baxter to go the full 6 innings, with the final out being called just before 11:30 p.m.
Thanks to everyone who came our and cheered the Cherokee team on.
