The North All-Stars pieced together a ninth-inning threat, but as was the case all weekend at Wabash College, it was too little, too late.

Chesterton's Mike Crowley singled and scored and the North had the tying run on second, but the South got out of the jam to claim a 3-1 victory in Sunday's wooden bat game and complete the series sweep.

"We'd have liked to have gotten the North a couple victories, but the kids went down fighting," said North coach Doug Greenlee of Kankakee Valley, who turned his cap inside-out in the ninth inning to spur the rally. "It's a long weekend. They gave it their all, which is something I'll remember. Any coach in any sport wants to win, but in the big picture, it's something I'll cherish because it doesn't happen very often."

Crowley finished 2-for-2 with a walk and two runs in the series. Dean Hill (Boone Grove) threw three scoreless innings Sunday, allowing two hits. Zac Ryan (Andrean) and Kyle Joyce (Hebron) each drew a walk as the North collected four hits.

"We just didn't have a lot of opportunities and when we did, we couldn't come up with the big hit," Greenlee said. "The South's pitching staff was outstanding, and I felt ours was, too. We just didn't make the plays defensively when we had to."
