Blackduck falls in state semis
CHASKA - Blackduck's dream season ended Friday with a 7-0 loss to Saint Agnes in the MSHSL Class A semifinals.
The Aggies (22-6) had too much offense for the Drakes (23-5), who will take on Browerville in the Class A third-place game later this afternoon at Chaska Athletic Park.
After Drakes pitcher Cody Bergqiust held the Aggies scoreless in the first inning, Saint Agnes scored in the second, third, fourth and fifth innings to run away with the game.
Blackduck pitchers Bergquist and Dylan Weisert gave up seven runs on nine hits.
Saint Agnes returns to the state finals for the first time since winning it all in 2001; they'll take on Lac qui Parle Valley Monday at Target Field.
