Later this afternoon, the 5th seed Albert Lea Lakers will take on the 4th seed Bancroft Bandits in a one-game winner take all contest. The winning team will take on the the 1st seed Carroll Merchants in a best-two-out-of-three series that will begin tomorrow in Carroll.

On the other side of the bracket, the 3rd seed Sioux Falls Gold will take on the 2nd seed Storm Lake Whitecaps in their own best-two-out-of-three series that will begin on Monday.
