Northern finally tasted its first loss of the playoffs.
They slowly walked off the field. They didn't know how to respond. Some probably even thought that they were eliminated as manager Randy Morris told the team it had to win.
Now, Northern has a day to rest before playing Thursday in the semifinals against Portsmouth, N.H., at 7:30.
Morris wonders how they will respond.
Northern will bounce back. When the players step foot on the practice field they will be ready to go. With its pitching lined up, Northern can still be a force.
