Following a rough start to a hectic week of baseball action, the Albion Cornerstone Legion Juniors rallied to finish on a strong note this past weekend.
The local Juniors dropped two lopsided decisions in Albion Tuesday and Thursday before bouncing back with consecutive victories over O’Neill and Shelton-Gibbon Friday and Sunday. The victories boosted Albion’s record to 6-7, as the Cornerstone Juniors head into the final week of their June schedule, then the final month of the summer season.
June 20: Neligh 11, Albion Cornerstone 0
June 22: Wayne 10, Albion Cornerstone 2
June 23: Albion Cornerstone 8, O’Neill 7
June 25: Albion Cornerstone 14, Shelton/Gibbon 2
What began in promising fashion went downhill, as the Albion Cornerstone Seniors dropped three straight games to close out a busy week of American Legion baseball action.
After thumping Neligh Tuesday, June 20, Cornerstone was able to muster only six total runs in consecutive losses to Wayne, O’Neill and Shelton/Gibbon – four of those coming in Sunday’s contest alone. Albion Cornerstone dropped to 7-9 on the season going into the final week of June and games against PWG, Sutton and Bennington.
