Worthington VFW splits at state tourney
Published 08/07/2008, Worthington Daily Globe
PERHAM — Thrust suddenly into a corner, with its back against the wall, the dilemma facing Worthington’s VFW baseball team late Thursday afternoon was simple: win or go home. After suffering a sudden and disheartening 5-4 loss against Grand Rapids in the first round, Post 3958 regrouped and responded just hours later with an 8-3 win over Perham to avoid the nearly five-hour trek back to Worthington and to extend its stay at the state tournament for at least one more day.
