E/PC’s undefeated season comes to an end
After seven wins to start the season, Elmwood/Plum City lost its first game of the season Monday — a 7-5 loss to Durand.
The score was tied 2-2 through four innings of play and were it not for three E/PC errors, Durand would have likely been facing a two-run deficit up to that point. A huge four-run fifth inning by Durand put the Panthers up for good though, despite three late runs by the Wolves.

E/PC, 7-1, is next scheduled to travel to Mondovi on Thursday.
