The Faribault Lakers vs. Montgomery Mallards Winner's bracket and Shakopee at New Prague Elimination bracket games scheduled for Sunday were moved to Monday due to much needed rain.

I don't think anyone complained about the precipitation.  Many people may have wanted more rain.

Faribault hosts Montgomery Monday at 8:00 p.m. while Shakopee at New Prague is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start in Region 3C Tournament action.

If the Lakers win they host Sunday in the title game.  If Montgomery wins they go to Union Hill.

Lonsdale awaits the loser of the Shakopee contest and plays Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Veseli ended St. Benedict's season Saturday with a 8-2 Elimination bracket victory.

In Region 5C Red Wing rolled over Wanamingo 10-0 in 7-innings thanks in part to 5 Jacks errors.  Wanamingo lost 9-3 Saturday to Cannon Falls.
