JAMESTOWN — Elias Harris pitched a workmanlike seven innings and Fargo Shanley put on an impressive opening-day display in a 4-1 win over West top seed Bismarck Century in the Class A state tournament quarterfinals on Thursday at Jack Brown Stadium.

Harris went the distance, allowing just a first-inning run on five hits. He walked three and struck out five.

Shanley's Josh Biver was 2 for 3 with a double and two RBIs and Jordan Leininger was 2 for 4 with a double and two RBIs.

Tommy Simon had two hits, Landon Meier doubles and Sam Ovsak singled.

Shanley, the East's No. 4 seed, plays West No. 3 seed Dickinson in the championship semifinals at 4:30 p.m. Friday, June 3, at Jack Brown Stadium.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
