Beulah’s John William Suter led off the bottom of the seventh with a double and was brought home on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Brayden Nelson to give Beulah the 5-4 victory over Devils Lake.
The Cyclones, the No. 2 seed from the West, finished in dramatic fashion after having to fight back to tie it.
Devils Lake, the No. 3 seed from the East, took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first thanks to RBI from Landen Hall and Jordan Swanson.
Beulah cut that in half in the bottom of the first after Mikey Morris singled and came around to score later in the frame.
The Storm build its advantage to 4-1 in the fourth inning thanks to RBI singles from Landyn Swenson and Parker Schmid.
Beulah tied the game in the bottom half, though. Devin Sardelli, Aaron Vallejo, Josh Remmick, Matt Schnabel and Alec Battest all notched singles in the inning, methodically putting runners on and moving them around. Schnabel’s knock drove in two runs, and Battest’s tied it.
In the seventh, Suter doubled from the ninth spot in the order, and Battest followed with a walk. Morris flew out to center, allowing Suter to tag up. Nelson then grounded a ball to Jacob Greene at second base, but Suter was nearly already home, so the out at first didn’t much matter. The win sends the Cyclones into the next round against the two-time defending champions of this tournament from Wahpeton, which defeated host Dickinson 14-3 in five innings in the late game Wednesday.
