It will be a rematch between the Chadron FNBO Nationals and Alliance Spartans tonight for the Class B Area 7 American Legion tournament championship.

Alliance dusted off Gering 7-2 in an elimination game at Chadron’s Maurice Horse Field on Monday and will need to beat the Nationals two times to win the tourney title.

Chadron has beaten Alliance twice in the last six days, once to close the regular season and the other a 13-2 drubbing on Sunday in the semifinals.

The Junior Nationals have been on a tear as of late, winning six of their last seven outings.

Chadron hasn’t been in the state tournament field since 2015, and hasn’t been a contender at state since a runner-up finish in 2010.

First pitch is at 5:00 pm tonight with an “if necessary” game to immediately follow should Chadron lose the first.
