Our congratulations go out to the Kaneland baseball team on its 7-4 victory over Marian Central Catholic Wednesday at the Rochelle Class 3A Sectional.
The Knights scored six runs in the top of the seventh inning to erase a 3-1 deficit. Bobby Thorson's three-run homer was the big blow in the comeback.
But what was really amusing was the quote reporter Jim Owczarski got out of veteran Marian coach Gregg Wikierak.
"We left so many guys on base and we just didn't get the big hit," Wikierak said. "We put ourselves in a very good position to come out on top but the doors fell off in the end, whatever the saying is for that. It was kind of ugly."
The doors fell off? That reminds me of a certain commercial...
I always hate it when my door falls off like that.
