Some losses sting more than others. For the Amherstburg Senior Cardinals, Sunday’s loss will sting for a long time.

The team lost 5-4 in extra innings to the Woodslee Orioles in the final of the Essex County Senior League playoffs. The Cardinals led 4-0 early but couldn’t hold onto the lead.

“It was a good game, with a disappointing result in the end,” said manager Alan Carr. “They played well and we played well, but we didn’t get any breaks.”
