The suspect was chased into the woods, but he managed to hide once inside the wooded area.

It wasn’t meant to be however, as Nevada relinquished their two-run sixth-inning lead en route to a gut-wrenching 6-5, nine inning defeat at the hands of the No. 1 ranked Aurora Houn’ Dawgs in the Missouri Class 4 sectionals Tuesday night at Lyons Stadium...
