The Orofino Merchants made a dramatic seventh-inning rally to defeat the Camas Prairie Zephyrs of Grangeville 8-7 in the first round of the Class A American Legion district tournament at Harris Field, only to suffer a 14-0 rout against the Northern Lakes Mountaineers later in the day, on Thursday, July 14.

Orofino (10-12-1) allowed the first four runs of its game against Camas Prairie (8-10) and trailed 7-3 going into the last inning, but found the winning spark at the last possible moment, with a two-out walkoff single by Drew Hanna clinching the come-from-behind victory.
