BRANDON, S.D. (GoWatertown.net) — Watertown Post 17’s season would come to an end in spectacular fashion over the weekend.

Althoff and Stevenson would each have two hits. RawdonSchmidt, Cole Holden and Kade Russell would each drop-down one. Jerod Cyrus would pitch seven innings allowing four hits, three runs, walk two, fan 10 on 106 pitches.
