VICTORIA, M.N. ( — After a week off, Watertown Post 17 will hit the road this weekend to the Gopher Classic.

The purple and gold’s game against Huron on Tuesday was postponed until July 13th due to severe weather in the area.  Watertown has not taken the field since June 30th in a doubleheader loss to powerpoints leading Brandon. Coach Ryan Neale says the rest was welcome:

Watertown is scheduled to play five games this weekend in the Victoria pool of the Gopher Classic.  Coach Neale takes us through the schedule:

Post 17 is scheduled for one nine-inning game at Marshall, Minnesota on July 11th.  If Watertown would advance out of pool play, they would not play the Marshall game.  Coach Neale says they are looking for confidence from the squad going into the weekend of play:
