After two victories to open the American Legion State Baseball Tournament, the La Grande Legacy Ford Legends were eliminated after a pair of defeats, falling to North Willamette Valley, 11-0, in five innings Friday, and losing to Roseburg, 5-2, Saturday in Aurora.

The losses end La Grande’s season at 23-15 overall, one victory shy of reaching Sunday’s championship round.

“It was really hard to see this season come to a close,” La Grande head coach Parker McKinley said.
