Hancock Legion bounced from league tournament

CHANNING – Ishpeming’s 5-0 lead after two innings proved too much for Hancock to overcome Monday night, as they defeated Hancock 9-5 in the first round of the Mid-Pen League Tournament.

Ishpeming scored four times in the second inning to build the big advantage.

Christian Cortright had an RBI single for Hancock, which will continue its season with tournaments the next two weekends before the Zone Playoffs begin in Marquette July 24.
