Hartington Seniors fall in tourney opener

Seth Wiebelhaus rounds third during Hartington Seniors’ game against Neligh .

HARTINGTON — There was a pitchers duel in Hartington on Friday night between Capp Bengston and Tyson Belitz, as Hartington and Neligh faced off in the first round of the Senior Legion League Tournament.
Hartington’s defense had a rough fourth inning, when they allowed three runs, and Hartington was only able to make up two of those runs, as they lost 3-2.
Bengston and Belitz are both team’s ace pitchers. They faced off earlier this year, and Hartington won that game 3-2, so Bengston knew coming into the game how challenging the game would be.
“I knew it was going to be a close game, and I knew I had to pitch really well,” said Bengston. “Unfortunately I didn’t do that tonight.”
