SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. – After losing their first round game, the Columbus Senior Legion team needed a long winning streak just to keep their season alive.
Columbus was immediately relegated to the loser’s bracket after falling to Gretna on Friday. At that point they needed three consecutive wins if they didn’t want their season to end this weekend.
The Columbus seniors recovered the next day, beating Norfolk in an elimination game.
Columbus needs to win the tourney, or finish second, to advance to one of two state tournaments.
Columbus will have a re-match against Gretna on Sunday at 4 p.m in an elimination game. If they win, they’ll play either Grand Island or Fremont, for the right to go to state.
