(Neb.)- Alliance To Meet Springfield/Bennington Winner For State Legion Title
(Chadrad Sprots)- Alliance will play for a Class B Senior Legion state championship today, despite being drubbed by Bennington last night 6-2. A rule stating that if three teams remain after game 13 of the tournament, the winner of game 11 will advance to the championship game. Alliance defeated Springfield in game 11 on Monday night.
The Spartans took an early 1-0 lead in Tuesday's contest, but Bennington added 2 runs in the third and 4 more in the fourth to seize control.
Bennington will battle Springfield, who took down Hickman in an elimination game 10-9 in 8 innings, for a chance to face Alliance in the championship game at 1:30. Because all teams remaining have one loss, there will only be one championship contest.
