Post #1 continues wins at Region 3B Tournament
The third day for the Region 3B tournament involved three contests.

In game #5, Dakota Valley eliminated Alcester 14-9.

Game # 6 was a five-inning, 10-run rule victory for Elk Point/Jefferson 19-9 vs. Harrisburg, eliminating them from tournament play.


Post #1 was assigned visitor team status in the seventh tournament game against Lennox Post #174.

Vermillion's Kyle Mollet should have enjoyed what might have been a "stroll in the park" had it not been an error-filled contest. He recorded 12 Ks enroute to a 12-8 win, involving mental and physical mishaps by both teams.

The first four innings were scoreless with the pitchers in control. Vermillion built a five-run lead in the mid sixth inning, then the roof fell in as Post # 1 committed four errors and Lennox scored five runs. Vermillion came back with a five-run seventh (aided by three HPs and two errors). But the nightmare wasn't over � Lennox scored three runs, as Vermillion committed three more errors. The pitchers finally regained control and the rest of the game seemed normal.

Line score: Post #174 � 8 R, 7 H, 6 E, 9 lob; Post #1 � 12 R, 11 H, 7 E, 6 lob.

Scoring stats for Post #1 were: Ben Oberle � 2 for 4, 1 run, 2 RBI; Reid Meierkort � 2 for 5, run, 2 RBI; Kyle Mollet � 1 for 3, 1 run; Scott Morrison � 1 run; Jeff Donnelly � 2 for 4, 4 runs, 1 RBI; Zach Weiss � 1 for 4, 2 runs, 1 RBI; Ryan Gilbertson � 3 for 4, 1 run, 1 RBI; Eric McPherson � 2 for 5, 1 run, 3 RBI.
