Aberdeen's bid for its first state title game appearance in nearly 40 years ended in nine innings Wednesday at Joe Canon Stadium in Harmans.
The Eagles (15-8) fell to Huntingtown, 3-1, in a Class 3A state semifinal despite leading, 1-0, into the sixth inning. Both teams scored unearned runs to create the 1-1 tie.
"We had some opportunities and didn't finish, an error here and there, but that's high school baseball," Aberdeen Coach Tim Lindecamp said. "Hell of a journey, no one expected this, so you know what? It's going to sting for a couple of days, but hey, we'll enjoy it, we had a great run out of them, what can you say?"
