The Alexandria VFW 16s baseball team won a low scoring game against Madison 4-2 in their first District 5 playoff matchup Tuesday night at Knute Nelson Ballpark.


The win advances Alexandria in the district playoffs to a 7:30 p.m. game on Friday night in Spicer.

Head coach Orin Schueler was impressed by Madison's play at the end of the season. He would not be surprised if they played again further on in the tournament.
