The tournament began with a 10–1 victory over Dakota College at Bottineau. The next two games the Knights played against Williston State College Tetons, winning 2­–1 and 9–0.

“The real turning point in the tournament was the semifinal 2–1 victory over Williston,” said Robert Ireton, freshman outfielder from Merriwa, Australia. “The 10-inning win allowed us to be one game ahead of Williston when playing them in the championship game.”

Brett Lindsey

Freshman infielder Brett Lindsey from Eagan, Minn., agreed the semifinal victory was crucial. “We felt confident going into this regional tournament and can’t wait to play in the district tournament next weekend.”

The Blue Knights travel to Miles City, Mont., for the North Plains District Championship May 18–19, 2013, hosted by Region 9 champion Miles Community College.

The district winner advances to the NJCAA 2013 Division II World Series May 25–Jun. 1, 2013, at David Allen Memorial Ballpark in Enid, Okla.
