BISMARCK - Bismarck Century pitcher Ian McDonald threw a no-hitter against Dickinson High in a 1-0 win Friday, but the Midgets came back in the second game of the doubleheader to top Century’s Dalton Feeney 2-1 to salvage a split of the West Region meeting.

In McDonald’s win, he allowed just one walk and had four strikeouts. Dickinson (16-4, 16-4 West Region) pitcher Shawn Steffan pitched four innings and surrendered just two hits, but that was enough for the Patriots. Ben Weaver scored on a triple from Nick Lembke in the third inning, providing the game’s only run.

Steffan walked just two and struck out one in the loss.

In the nightcap, Century (14-5, 14-5) was staked to a 1-0 lead after Feeney scored in the second inning, but Steffan and Eli Jung would both score in the top of the fifth to put the Midgets ahead for good.

Greg Haataja took over for Brock Messer in the fourth inning and earned the win for Dickinson. Tanner Ouellette earned the save.
