Minneota vs. Cottonwood in Legion semifinals
Cottonwood won the play-in game over Dawson 6-4 on Wednesday, then beat No. 1-ranked Montevideo, 9-3 to advance to the semifinals of the District 7 American Legion Baseball Tournament.
They will play Minneota, a 9-7 winner over Madision in the double-elimination tournament at 11 a.m. Saturday in Madison.
The winner will advance to the finals at noon on Sunday at Montevideo.
The loser comes back for a 3 p.m. game on Saturday in an attempt to get back in the finals.
In the losers bracket, Montevideo, the No. 1 seed was to play Madison, the No. 2 seed.
But apparently Madison has dropped out in favor of summer basketball league play. Montevideo plays the loser of the semifinal game (Cottonwood or Minneota) to get to the championship game.
If the losers bracket team wins in the finals, they will play at second game at 2 p.m. to determine the champion.
The champion advances to the Best of Three series vs. the south Sub-Section winn on Tuesday, July 18 and 20.
