Pirates hope to hold off elimination tonight
The Windom Pirates will try to fight off elimination in the Region 13C playoffs tonight when they host Fairmont, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Island Park.
Fairmont won the opening game of the best-of-three series Wednesday, beating the Pirates 5-4.
If Windom wins tonight, a deciding third game of the series will be played Sunday in Fairmont, starting at 2 p.m.
The winner of the series earns a berth in the Class C State Tournament, which begins Aug. 18 at Green Isle, Norwood and Hamburg. A single game between the Windom/Fairmont winner and the Hadley/Milroy winner will be played to determine the top two seeds from the region.
The losers of the two series will play another best-of-three series, beginning Aug. 9, to determine the third-seeded team from Region 13C to qualify for the state tournament.
