ALEXANDRIA -- After Bemidji forced a second championship game with a walkoff win on Sunday, Moorhead head coach Bryant Bergeson said the Blues hadn’t done enough to build on their lead when they had chances.
They fixed that on Monday, jumping out to an 8-2 lead after four innings and taking the Minnesota Division I Substate American Legion title game 14-6 in Alexandria.
“The last three years we lost right away and had to battle through the loser’s bracket one time, and we fell short a couple times,” Bergeson said. “I told them after the tribulations they’ve been through the last three years, they deserve this.”
All but two of the Blues hitters had multiple hits, including a 3-for-3 day from Tanner McBain with a double, a hit-by-pitch, two RBIs and a run scored. Braeton Wixo added two doubles and two runs scored, while Carter Howell and Isaac Howe combined for six RBIs and three runs.
