West Fargo won game one 7-4.

In the second game, with one out, Matt Heupel singled and advanced to third on a Watertown error. Seth Wigestrand was intentionally walked with two outs and Burchill's single to second scored Heupel.

Burchill had two hits, including a double, and two RBI and Brayden Jacobson doubled and drove in four runs. Heupel had a hit and scored twice.
