The Hill-Murray Pioneers are heading into the 2015 boys soccer season with high hopes of taking one more big step toward heading back to the Minnesota State Boys Soccer Tournament come the end of the section playoffs.
The Sub-State 7 American Legion Baseball playoffs were played at Kuenkel Field in North St. Paul, July 21-25, and once the last out was recorded, the North St. Paul 39ers were on top and headed to the state tournament.

'Crazy' play helps seal win
With starter Gus Varland on the mound and reliever Nate Rubbelke coming on in the sixth, the 39ers put together a solid pitching performance and improved their District IV standings to 6-3 and to 15-11 overall with a 4-0 whitewash of the Rosetown Rockets Tuesday, July 7.
"Actually it was a good pitching performance by both teams," said Rosetown head coach Jeremy Nelson. "There were some 'crazy' plays, but overall it was a good game.
He added that even though the 39ers "out-hit us and out-pitched us, it was a good pitching duel."
