The Challengers lost the winner-takes-it-all Game 5 on Sunday, September 28, as the Flyers edged the C’s 6-5. The team of head coach Chris Palatinus opened the score with two runs in the top of the first inning but couldn’t hold on. Trailing 3-6 in the top of the ninth, the C’s came within one run, but the Flyers recorded the third out with the tying run on second base to eventually move into the Finals.
With the defeat the Challengers’ season ends in the semi-finals for the third consecutive year. The Flyers will play the Zürich Barracudas in the Finals with Game 1 taking place at the Heerenschürli ballpark on Saturday, October 4.
