“That is the story of our season so far,” Harmony Grove coach Brandon Kelly said. “One game as a team we will bat .530 and the next game we will bat .190.

“Last night, we put together a complete game and tonight was inconsistency and that goes back to us being young there is no excuse.
“Mentally we melted down tonight.”
