Irish end season in playoffs

 

The Maple Lake Irish ended its run for a state baseball tournament berth last week at Delano.
After defeating Annandale in the first game of the Section 5-2A Section Tournament, the Irish faced No. 2 seed Dassel-Cokato who put an end to Maple Lake’s hopes of advancing with a 5-1 win, Wednesday, May 27, in Delano.
Nate Maas’ RBI single got the Irish on the board in the first inning, giving them an early lead. The Irish held onto the lead until the fourth inning when D-C rebounded with four runs of its own. The Chargers put up one more run in the sixth to end it.
