Falcons fourth in WVC regular season, tournament

OABCIG’s baseball team completed regular season conference play with an 11-5 record and went 0-2 in the conference tournament last week. The Falcons placed fourth in both the regular season Western Valley Conference standings and the conference tournament.

The Falcons entered their final regular season game July 9 at East Sac County with a 12-9 record. OABCIG will play Missouri Valley in a first round district tournament game this Saturday at 5 p.m. in Alta.


The Falcons closed out the regular conference season July 28 with a 5-3 win over West Monona in Onawa.

Coach Dan Dotzler noted the game was “a grind-it-out game that our boys came through in.”

After falling behind 3-1 entering the fifth inning, the Falcons generated one run in the fifth and were called out at the plate, attempting to score on a passed ball.  The Falcons would generate two runs in the top of the sixth inning to take a 4-3 lead and added another run in the top of the seventh to lengthen the lead.
