The Hiawatha Post 66 Senior Legion Braves played saved some of their absolute best play for last this week, as the team put together a trio of outstanding performances in the Zone Tournament at Sabetha.

On Sunday, the Braves pushed perennial powerhouse Marysville to the brink in the opener. Marysville led 2-1 after two innings, but Hiawatha responded with RBI singles from Bricen Lee and Xavier Oldham to take a 4-2 advantage in the 3rd. The teams pushed back and forth over the next few innings, heading into the 7th inning at 5-5. In the final frame, Marysville was able to capitalize on Hiawatha mistakes, as a hit-by-pitch eventually came around to score for a walk-off 6-5 win. Ashton Rockey and Jake Rieger each had 2 hits for Hiawatha and Lee contributed 2 RBIs.
