The Bear River baseball team made a gallant effort, pulling to within two in the final inning, but they didn’t have enough to stave off elimination in the state 3A baseball playoffs in Spanish Fork.
In what was essentially a home game for their opponent, Payson, the Bears fell behind early and had to make up ground. Down 8-3 in the 7th, they scratched across a few runs but the Lions closed the deal to eliminate the Bears (9-3, 13-13).
