Broken Bow fought through windy, chilly conditions and came up just short Friday night against Gothenburg, losing 7-6.
The Indians were able to get runners on first and 2nd in the bottom of the 7th trailing 7-6, but the game ended with Gothenberg nabbing Seth Quackenbush trying to steal third base.
Broken Bow held a 4-2 lead throughout most of the game, but Gothenburg broke the game open in the top of the 6th inning, scoring four runs to go up 7-5. Broken Bow managed to get one around in the bottom of the 7th, but it wasn't enough.
SARGENT - The Sargent Fair is almost as old as Sargent but actually started as a harvest celebration. As crops and harvests grew largerâ€¦ the warm autumns seemed to grow shorter. This provoked the Fairâ€™s change in schedule from an autumn to a summer event.
In the 1980s, where â€śout of the ordinaryâ€ť became normal, the celebration needed an identity of itâ€™s own, thus the worlds first and only Chokecherry Jamboree was born. Now you may find more Chokecherry events, but Sargentâ€™s was the first!
Another round of severe storms made their way through the region last night, dumping heavy rains, some small hail and prompting several tornado warnings. Tornado sirens were sounded in Broken Bow about 4 p.m. Wednesday, after the National Weather Service in North Platte reported seeing rotation on their radar about 8 miles southwest of Broken Bow heading northeast. While there were no confirmed reports of an actual tornado touching down in or around Broken Bow, there was a confirmed report by a trained spotter of a tornado on the ground near Comstock.
