Jordon KontzBarry Meyer


The 2018 A's season came to a close on Saturday night as they fell 4-3 to the Granite Falls Kilowatts in Atwater in Region 4C play.

Jordon Kontz (5-5) went the distance again for the A's, striking out 11 while allowing two earned runs.

Kontz also had three hits and a RBI to pace the A's attack.

The A's jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the first when Nate Hoeft scored on a sac fly from Barry Meyer.

After the Kilowatts squared the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the first, Marshall answered back with a pair in the second, highlighted by a RBI double by Kontz.

Granite Falls once again evened the score in the bottom of the third and then took a 4-3 lead in the fifth.

The A's threatened a few times in the later innings, including loading the bases in the ninth with two outs, but a groundout to second ended the A's season 90 feet short.

The A's final record was 8-15.
