(ABC 6 News) - The three-seed Hayfield Vikings baseball team's state run is over after falling to unseeded Sacred Heart in the Class A state quarterfinals on Thursday.
The Eagles brought their A-game, plating two runs in the first inning. The Vikings would respond, eventually tying the game up in the fifth inning. But Sacred Heart brought the heat in the 6th inning. The Eagles upset the Vikings 10-6 to advance to the state semifinals.
Following the Vikings loss, the team said they didn't come this far for just the experience, they were hoping to win games.
"[We] were disappointed that we lost," Vikings head coach Kasey Krekling said. "Obviously thought we had a team that could win some games up here. Hopefully we'll win a couple games and become consolation champions. This one's going to sting a little because we did a lot of things right and just did to many things wrong too."
The Vikings will place for a consolation trophy on Friday when they face South Ridge at 12:30 p.m. at Chaska Athletic Park.
