NEW BLOOMFIELD -- One team scored 10 runs and their coach wasn't pleased. The other team scored 18, and their coach wasn't pleased.

It was just one of those weird nights Thursday in the Senior Legion District Tournament, where Jefferson City Post 5 stopped Fulton Post 210 by an 18-10 margin in a winner's bracket contest.

"We scored 18 in five innings and we just stopped," Post 5 coach Billy Cannon said. "We've got to learn how to close, how to finish the game."

It was a similar sentiment in the other dugout.
