VFW tops TRF to stay alive in district tourney


PERHAM -- Despite an early loss, the Bemidji VFW baseball team is still alive in the Minnesota District 9 tournament.

After receiving a bye in the tournament, the No. 2 seeded VFW squad fell to third-seeded Fergus Falls 9-5 Friday morning.

The loss dropped Bemidji to the consolation bracket in the double-elimination tournament. That meant the VFW had to play Thief River Falls later Friday to stay alive.
