There will be one final game for the Cowdin Cup championship

Rathert Field will be the site for the final game of the Cowdin Cup playoffs Thursday at 7 p.m. The Junction City Brigade will host the Midwest A's with their best two-out-of-three championship series tied at one-win apiece.

Midwest defeated Junction City 8-5 in game one in a contest that had been started in Junction City Tuesday night but was suspended in the 8th inning due to rain. The remainder of the game was played in Kansas City, Missouri Wednesday night. Then there was a full nine-inning contest won by the Brigade 5-4. With the A's having the potential tying run at third  base, Junction City pitcher Boston Dowd struck out P.J. Alvarez for the final out in the ninth inning to clinch the win for the Brigade.

Junction City General Manager Cecil Aska is hoping for a big crowd at Rathert Field Thursday evening. "I would love it if we could get a thousand, but I would be happy if five or six hundred people show up. It's going to be a good game. I think it's going to be a great atmosphere."

Aska said admission prices for the ballgame will be reduced to $3 for adults and $1 for children. Kids 5 and under will be admitted free.
