The heat kept the regular season from coming to an end on Post 8’s terms. Instead Pierre finished the regular season with split with Brandon Valley on Saturday after Monday’s game was canceled due to the excessive heat warning. Now, Pierre will be gear up for the best-of-three series as they face the Renner Royals on the road.
It’s the first time in the three year existence of the playoff format where the Eights will have to travel. Pierre finished the South Dakota season at 9-9 and 17-20 overall on the year. Pierre has to face the defending state champions although it’s a much different team with new personnel compared to last year’s team. However, Pierre did drop a 6-4 decision to the Royals back at the beginning of July at home. The Eights will be looking to make amends and win when it matters the most and the season on the line. KCCR will have coverage of the first round on both Friday and Saturday from Renner. You can listen on KCCR and watch it on YouTube at KCCR Sports with Jon Winkler on the call.
