Verona topples Brewers

MONROE - It seemed improbable that the Monroe Brewers and Wiota Indians' paths would cross again in the Home Talent League's Western Section Sunday playoffs after Wiota was in danger of missing the playoffs a month ago following a demoralizing 5-1 loss to New Glarus. But, on Sunday, Verona used some power hitting to beat the Brewers 7-2, and that loss coupled with Wiota's 14-5 win over Ridgeway punched the Indians' ticket to the playoffs, and a rematch with Monroe."If Wiota has everybody they are as good as anybody in the league," Brewers co-player manager Lon Scheuerell said. "They are capable of going to the final four. Verona is above everyone in the Western Section. After Verona, the second through seventh place teams can beat anyone on any given day. That will be a tough game."
