Trailing 2-0 for most of the game, Nebraska State Bank Baseball refused to quit and rallied to take the game into extra innings where they would eventually pull away from Kearney and win 6-2.
An RBI-single by Justin McCullough brought the game even at 2-2 in the top of the 7th inning. Kearney Little Ceasers stranded a runner in the bottom of the seventh, opening for Broken Bow to blow the game wide open in the top of the 8th.
This is when right fielder Jake McCormick stepped up and delivered a two-RBI single that put Broken Bow up 4-2 and gave them the lead for good.
Don Davis, Mid-Plains Community College Extended Campus Coordinator in Broken Bow, has announced his retirement effective July 1.

The Spirit had been in close games before during this season. None of them went as planned.
In their final game of the season at Tomahawk Park, a seventh-inning rally changed all that.
Broken Bow trailed 7-3 entering the final inning and then put their bats to work. Timely hitting by Tressa Ripp, Karly Boje and Jasmyn Brooks helped seal the 8-7 comeback victory for the Spirit.
The game ended on an RBI single from Brooks.
