Bismarck, ND -
The Century Patriots are ready for the post season.
And they start it all with a huge rivalry.
Century faces Bismarck High in the first round of the WDA tournament.
The Patriots are seeded 3rd, while BHS is 6th.
Bismarck High is the only West team to beat Century in both conference games they played, not only just that, the Demons swept the Pats in all four games.
Century had a veteran pitching staff going into this season, and they've tried to rely upon that.
Last season the Patriots won the West Region tournament, to do it again they'll need to get some timely hits.
But more than just wining the West, Century's coaches know making the state tournament is the biggest part of the picture.
The first game of the day is a play in game between Turtle Mountain and Williston, that starts at 10 am.
The number two seed Dickinson plays number 7 St. Mary's.
Century and Bismarck High play at 2:30 Thursday afternoon.
Jamestown and Minot play at 4:45.
The final game of the day is between the number one seed Mandan against the winner of Turtle Mountain-Williston at 7.
All games are in Williston starting Thursday, running through Saturday.
