In three games in the Section 5A tournament, the New York Mills Eagles have outscored their opponents by a combined 37-2 margin. In fact, the only two runs the Eagles have given up throughout the tournament were a pair of unearned runs against Walker-Hackensack-Akeley.

Last week the Eagles defeated Sebeka by a score of 10-0 and WHA by a score of 16-2 to capture the sub section championship and advance in the winner’s bracket of the Section 5A tournament. They were scheduled to play Ogilvie on Monday night at 7:30 p.m. for the right to advance to Thursday’s section championship game. The loser of the game dropped to the elimination bracket and will need to win Tuesday night to advance to Thursday’s title game. All of the remaining games in the section tournament will be held in Pierz.

The Eagles are currently 16-6 on the season and ranked eighth in the Class A QRF.

Dashaun Robinson and Sam Kopveiler combined to give up just one hit over five innings as the NY Mills Eagles blanked Sebeka 10-0 on Tuesday night. The lone hit for the Trojans was a one out double in the top of the second inning and no Sebeka runner advanced past second base on Tuesday.

Already leading 4-0, the Eagles broke the game open in the bottom of the fourth inning with six runs, including a two run bases loaded double by Robinson, a wild pitch, a passed ball and two-run double by Grady Roberts to put the Eagles up 10-0. The Trojans went down in order in the top of the fifth inning to come away with the 10-0 win in five innings. 

Roberts led the way offensively with a pair of doubles and two RBIs, while Robinson hit a single and double to go along with a pair of RBIs in the win.
