Panther nine denied third straight state tournament berth
ALTOONA - Mitch Stalsberg's 16 strikeouts plus no errors on Viroqua's part helped the No. 9 ranked Blackhawks upend No. 3 Ellsworth 2-0 in a WIAA Division 2 sectional semifinal match-up Tuesday afternoon at Bement Field in Cinder City Park.
EHS was held to just three hits. Their best chance the Panthers had to score runs came in their last at bats as they put two runners on with the winning run at the plate. But Stahlsberg fanned two batters in the inning to end the game.
