PL All Stars season ends

GRAND?RAPIDS – The Portage Lake Minor (9-10 years old) All-Stars season came to an end over the weekend, falling 7-2 to Roosevelt Park Saturday and then 9-1 to South Portage Sunday.

Roosevelt Park took a 3-0 lead in the first inning, putting PL behind the ball immediately. Two more runs for Roosevelt in the third proved too much of a gap, though Portage did crack the scoreboard with an RBI double from Dylan Primeau and RBI single from Nick Horning. Emmett Larson, Jonah Horning, and Brandon Norkol all hit safely once, while Austin Salani and Nick Horning recorded a pair of singles each.

Sunday, Portage Lake again fell behind early, going down 6-0 in the first three innings.

Norkol drove in the lone run for PL in the fifth with a booming double to center field.

Horning bagged two singles Sunday as well.
