LE SUEUR-Austin VerSteeg fired a three-hitter and the Glenwood/Lowry positioned itself well for a spot in the American Legion Division II State Final Four with a 2-0 victory over Dillworth on Friday in the tournament's opening round.

The criteria for obtaining one of four seeds for the semifinals includes tiebreakers based on runs scored and allowed, so a shutout victory helps even if G/L falls in today's second pool game against Pierz at 9 p.m., said head coach Bob Hendrickson.

G/L didn't need a hit to bring Justin Amundson around to score the game-winner in the first inning, and VerSteeg helped his cause in the third, singling in Amundson.

Amundson singled to lead off the inning, Michael Gruber was hit by a pitch and VerSteeg followed with his RBI single.

Gruber and VerSteeg both had two hits and Colin Richards and Amundson had G/L's other base hits.

The two runs were essentially a dozen for VerSteeg. He worked all seven innings and allowed just three singles and two walks while striking out five.
