Cohasset, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The Cherry softball team won twice on Tuesday afternoon to move to (22-0) this season and into the Section 7A championship game, where they will face the Carlton Bulldogs.

The Tigers beat Silver Bay 8-5 in the first contest of the day and then defeated Carlton 4-1 to advance to the Section 7A title game.

The Bulldogs, meanwhile, first beat South Ridge 8-5 before losing to Cherry, and then the team defeated Silver Bay 12-4 to advance in the double-elimination tournament.

The Bulldogs will need to beat Cherry twice on May 31 in order to claim the section crown, while Cherry will only require one win to earn a trip to the Class A state tournament.
