For most of the game against Vincentian, it seemed as though an upset was in the making when the Northgate Flames baseball team hosted the undefeated Royals last Thursday.
That all changed in the final inning, as the Flames fell in defeat, 9-2.
"A couple of errors and walks just killed us," said coach Brandon Hogle.
Northgate managed just three hits -- all of them coming in the second inning, where the Flames took the lead that lasted through the fifth inning.
"Our bats went cold," said Hogle afterwards.
