East No. 3 Enderlin-Maple Valleyâ€™s Class B State run in Minot took a turn for the dramatic with Fridayâ€™s 16-14 loss to defending champion East No. 5 Central Cass â€” in which the Falcons nearly rallied from a 7-2 deficit â€” and Saturdayâ€™s sixth-inning sac fly that gave West No. 1 Westhope/Newburg/Bottineau the 1-0 Third-Place Game win.
