No. 8 Warriors stun No. 1 Buffalo in quarterfinals


BUFFALO — For the first time in 11 years the Brainerd Warriors are going to the semifinals of the Section 8-4A tournament.

Eighth-seeded Brainerd earned the right to move on with a spine-tingling 69-67 double-overtime win over No. 1 Buffalo in the quarterfinals Tuesday night.

It was Brainerd’s first quarterfinal win since March 6, 2001, when it nipped Bemidji 53-52.
