Regional play-ins take place this week

While Plato gets to relax this week given its No. 1 seed, both Glencoe and Brownton will be fighting for their postseason lives as the Region 7C Tournament play-in series begin this week.
The Bruins, which claimed the No. 9 seed in the final regional standings, are scheduled to open their play-in series at eighth-seeded Watertown at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. The best-of-three series is slated to continue with the venue switching to Brownton for a 7:30 p.m. contest on Friday. 
If necessary, a third and final game will be played at Watertown with first pitch at 2 p.m. Sunday.
A similar schedule awaits the seventh-seeded Brewers in their play-in series against No. 10 New Germany. 
Glencoe is set to host the opener at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, before traveling to face the Dutchmen in Waconia at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
If needed, the two teams will square off one last time at 2 p.m. Sunday in Glencoe.
Plato is scheduled to play a yet-to-be determined opponent in its Region 7C opener at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 4. That game will take place in Watertown, which is co-hosting this year’s regional bracket with St. Boni.
