Royals advance to semi-finals

Face Wolves here tonight
In a replay of a 7-7 tie that took place last Thursday, the fourth-place Rainy River Royals upset the host second-place Big Grassy Braves 7-1 yesterday evening in the quarter-finals of the Rainy River District Fastball League playoffs.
Murray Armstrong earned the win while Travis Tom was tagged with the loss.
But Rainy River won’t have long to rest up before their semi-final contest, which goes tonight at 6:30 p.m. against the defending RRDFL champion Sight & Sound Wolves at VanJura here.
Tonight’s winner will advance to the final against top-ranked Beef’s Warriors on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Couchiching.
If the Warriors win that game, they will be crowned league champs.
But if they lose, they will have a second chance to clinch the title next Tuesday night (Aug. 30).
