Brewers look to snag spot in region tourney

A pair of 3-2 losses to wrap up the regular season could not keep the Glencoe Brewers from hanging on to fourth place in the Crow River Valley League (CRVL) northern division as the squad prepares to enter postseason play this week.
Glencoe began the final week of its regular season by improving its season-best winning streak to six games with a 7-0 blanking of Gaylord in a non-league game on Tuesday, July 21 at Vollmer Field.
However, while the Brewers nearly upended CRVL South champion Green Isle to kick off last weekend, Glencoe fell 3-2 at the Irish on Saturday, July 25 before losing by the same score at Watertown the next afternoon to conclude the regular season with a 14-15 overall record.
The Brewers remained at and above .500 within CRVL play, however, finishing with an 11-8 mark over all league games and a 6-6 tally within the North division.
Glencoe finished the regular season in the same standing as it had spent much of the summer — the No. 4 team in the North. That position was good enough to earn home-field advantage for the CRVL Tournament that will determine which teams advance to the Region 7C Tournament that begins on Thursday, Aug. 6.
