After a double header sweep over Huron on Wednesday, Pierre Post 8 heads to Minot for a weekend tournament beginning Friday and running through Sunday.
The Eights are 2-3 against teams outside of South Dakota this year as they will face two North Dakota teams and a Minnesota team. The Eights have won its last nine games against South Dakota opponents but it’s another chance to tinker with the lineup throughout the weekend on the all-turf field in Minot.
The Eights will face Watertown, Minnesota at 5:00 tonight followed by the final game of the day between Pierre and Minot. On Saturday, Pierre will face Mandan at 12:00 and then will be placed in either the 5:00 game Saturday night as the one or four seed, or the 7:30 game as the two or three seed. If the Eights win Saturday night, they will play in the championship game on Sunday at noon.
Every game of the tournament will be on KCCR, kccrradio.com and on YouTube at KCCR Sports with Jon Winkler and Greg Dean on the call beginning with coverage tonight starting around 4:40.
