A busy night

The B-B-E Jaguars baseball team came away with a split against Eden Valley-Watkins tonight. They suffered an error-plagued 8-4 loss in game one, and then in game two came back from a 3-0 deficit to win 5-4. The loss definitely puts their state ranking (No. 14 in Class 1A) in jeopardy and puts a huge dent in their chances at a conference title. The good news is that Paynesville Area split with Maple Lake tonight in a pair of games decided by one run. The Jaguars remain (roughly) one game out of first place in the Central Minnesota Conference.
