Post 147 needed just one win to claim the title and earn the fight to play in the state baseball tourna- ment starting today in Grand Forks. But Park River would have to get by a pesky Grafton team first. The Spoilers, who would have to have beaten Post 147 twice to win the regionals, played gallantly but fell just short in this 8-6 game. Tom Magnusson would pick up the win, going five innings and al- lowing just four runs. Will Zim- merman would get the save. The Spoilers would take an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first on a Noah Heichert sac fly and a Justin Young single. Post 147 would get orie of those back in the bottom of the first on a Zimmer- man home run. Park River would blow this one open in the fifth thanks to a two out, two run double to Adam Zavalney that made the score 5-2. Grafton would get back to with- in one at 6-5 in the sixth but in the sixth Charlie Thompson would pick up an RBI single and Zim- merman would add a sac fly to make it 8-5. The Spoilers would add one run in the top of the sev- enth but Zimmerman would strike the final batter out with a man on base to secure the win and the championship. Post 147 is slated to play at 4:30 today in Grand Forks in the open- ing round of the state A tourna- ment. Do you or your group have a story to tell?
