Margaretville 8 - Stamford 4
There was much uncertainty for the Margaretville American Legion baseball team as they headed to Stamford to play a Delaware League contest Monday night.
Backlogged games and the news that the Roxbury team had folded kept the Margaretville nine guessing about their playoff chances. With Margaretville locked in a three-team playoff chase with Delhi and Stamford, the visitors knew their only chance to continue their season in the playoffs was to earn a victory over their Stamford hosts. Margaretville did just that scoring early and often to top the junior Indians, 8-4.
