St. Croix Central baseball team puts up a playoff battle


The St. Croix Central and Amery baseball teams both finished with .500 records in their respective conferences, so it was fair to expect a close battle when they met in the opening round of WIAA Division 2 regional tournament action last Tuesday.

The game was as close as anticipated. In fact, an extra inning was needed before Amery could claw past the Panthers, 4-3.

The Panthers finish the season with a 6-11 record. They finished 6-6 in Dunn-St. Croix Conference games.
