A come-from-behind 9-8 win over Rogers City gave the Onaway Cardinal baseball team a district title Saturday in Hillman. The Cards broke the hearts of Huron fans with four runs in the sixth inning and one more in the seventh to erase an 8-4 Huron lead. Onaway defeated Hillman 5-0 in the semifinals.
Rogers City trailed 1-0 in their 4-1 win over Johannesburg in the other district semifinal.
On the softball side, the Lady Hurons bats were booming in a pair of wins over Johannesburg, 11-3 and Hillman, 7-1. Onaway lost 4-3 to Hillman in the first semifinal game.
