Late mistakes cost BCHS in home baseball finale.

BCHS trailed 1-0 to Monticello in the fifth inning of their regular season home finale Wednesday.  A throwing error on a bunt and Austin Bergeaux's RBI bunt single made it 2-1.  But the Royals gave up three, two via errors, in the sixth. They left the bases loaded with one out in the home half and also could not capitalize on a two on, two out opportunity in the seventh.
