ESSEX – The championship game of the Corner Conference Baseball Tournament between Sidney and Stanton was suspended, Friday, June 26.

The teams will resume the game at 3:00 p.m., Thursday, July 2 in Stanton prior to the regular season softball/baseball doubleheader.

The regular season game scheduled for 7:15 p.m. that evening will have regular season conference championship implications.

Sidney scored a run in the first and added two in the second inning off Stanton starting pitcher Keygan Day.

The Vikings had just completed a four-run third inning against Sidney pitcher Garett Phillips before play was stopped.

Sidney will come to bat for the bottom of the third inning when the game resumes.
