As expected the Rockets traveled to Litchfield to take on the Dragons in the Sub-section playoff round. In a surprising move, Coach Maher called to have JJ pitch the playoff game. He threw well giving up 8 hits and 4 runs (2 earned), but the Rockets could only muster 1 run themselves, so JJ took the loss (4-1) and that ended the 2018 Rocket Baseball season. 10 seniors on the squad played their final games of HS baseball. Good Luck men!
The game results were not posted to GameChanger, so I don’t have a line score for you, if that ever appears, I’ll add it in here.
In what has become a “too common” situation in the late weeks of the various team sport seasons, the SEEDING for the Section 5AA playoffs will take place 5/21… Which likely means the games between Annandale and Rockford that night will NOT be taken into account.
As such, the current standings likely will be the standings for the Section Playoffs.
Round 1 – losers are done, winners advance to double elimination Bracket Play:
#1 Holy Family – Bye
#9 Breck @ #8 Norwood-Young America
#12 Howard Lake @ #5 Glencoe
#13 Watertown @ #4 SW Christian (I’m assuming this is in Cologne)
#14 Mpls Henry @ #3 Maple Lake
#11 Marantaha @ #6 Blake
#10 Rockford @ #7 Litchfield
#15 Mpls North @ #2 Providence (I’m assuming this is in Loretto)
Let’s go Rockets, now is when it counts!
