Challengers start league with sweep

They have plenty of new faces on their roster, but it was two veteran players who were clutch for the Eugene Challengers in their first league games Thursday night. The Challengers swept the Roseburg Doc Stewart’s in an Area 4 American Legion doubleheader at Swede Johnson Stadium, due largely to the efforts of third-year players Tanner Cantwell and Tommy Ahlstrom. In the opening game, the Challengers topped Roseburg 7-5.
