With a 10-0 win over Makoti in the title game of the Section 6 American Legion Baseball Tournament, Watford City punched their ticket to the State American Legion Baseball Tournament. The State Tournament begins on Wednesday, July 27, in Bottineau with Watford City taking on Velva in opening round action.
In the Sectional Tournament, Watford City got off to a good start pounding Stanley, 16-4, in five innings to advance to the semifinals. But the Walleye stumbled against the Mavericks in that game losing 8-3.
Watford City then knocked off Garrison, 12-0, in five innings to set the stage for a two-game matchup against Makoti with the Walleye being forced to win both games in order to advance to the State Tournament.
And the Walleye rose to the challenge blasting Makoti, 10-0, in the first of two championship games, and then securing their spot at the State Tournament downing the Mavericks in the second game, 11-0.
