A nice baseball season for the Spooner Rails, including a Heart O’ North Conference championship, came to an end on May 29 as Spooner fell 6-4 to Cumberland in the WIAA Division 3 final.
The Rails opened the Regional seeded #1. On May 28, they held off Unity for a 4-2 win.
The next day, May 29, Spooner hosted Cumberland at a jam-packed Merchant Park as fans of both teams turned out for the Regional final. The fifth inning turned the tide of the game. With Spooner up 4-2, Cumberland made it 4-3 on an error, then tied things up 4-4 on a long hit. Another hit put the Beavers ahead 5-4. [Photos by Bill Thornley]
