(WDAY Sports) - The Hankinson Pirates will play for all the marbles tomorrow in the North Dakota 9 man finals. The Pirates got off to a slow start, but they've gotten better by the week and will face Parshall White Shield for the crown.
The seniors say a little experience has gone a long way.
“We’ve been senior dominated with 8 seniors and we've been helping the other kids out and no one's getting down on anyone.”
“Their leadership their desire and wanting to be competitive and move forward to the next round has been pushing this team. They needed the confidence of a playoff victory and we got it and that just kind of spring-boarded us.”
