The season came to an end for the Class 3A No. 10 Decorah baseball team as the Vikes fell to Class 3A No. 2 Clear Lake 6-3 Wednesday in New Hampton in the substate final.
Clear Lake (35-3) moves on to the state tournament in Des Moines.
Decorah ends the season 27-9 overall.
Clear Lake put up three runs in the first, then added another in the second to lead 4-0. Decorah used small ball to cut the lead to 4-3. However, a two RBI double by Clear Lake pushed the lead to 6-3.
Decorah had the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the seventh but couldn't push a run across.
