Mark one up for the Bree Cheese.

In the crucial final game, they put away the Lake Town Archers 5-2 at Lake Town Park to win the Hobbit Series, 2-1 and advance to the Fellowship Series.

Although his team came up short, Lake Town’s Garon Paddywhack was named the series MVP, with many of the league media feeling the series would have been over much sooner if not for his contributions.

“Paddywhack did a lot to keep Lake Town in it, no doubt about that,” said Cheese manager Tonak Gnomedragger.

The Bree Cheese will play against the Carrock Bears in the next round. Carrock had a bye in the Hobbit Series. The Fellowship Series schedule will be announced after the Hobbit Series finishes.

Raucous Bree-Land Ballpark Crowd Propels Cheese to 4-1 Victory; Series Tied at 1

The Bree Cheese topped the Lake Town Archers by the score of 4-1 and moved into a 1-1 tie in the Hobbit Series today. The largest share of the credit went to player of the game and Bree starter Sjors the Slobberer, who threw 6 innings allowing 1 run in the win.

Tied up with the Archers in the bottom of the fourth inning, the Cheese got a boost from first baseman Mororon Anulinde. With the bases empty, Anulinde saw a 1-1 changeup from Boof Felps and hit a solo home run to break the stalemate and put Bree on top, 2-1.

“We’ll enjoy this win,” said the Slobberer. “But there’s more we hope to accomplish.”
