Farmington VFW team wins 2


The Farmington VFW baseball team started slowly in last Thursday's matchup with league-leading New Prague, but boy did they finish strong.

Farmington fell behind 5-1 early while playing without much energy, coach Jonathan Graff said. But the local team started to pick things up with three third-inning runs, then really got going with another eight runs in the fourth.
