Lightning play Ada in second round at state


Nisswa manager Aaron Jenkins didn’t know much about Blue Earth before the Lightning nipped the powerful Pirates 1-0 in the opening round of the Class C state tournament last weekend at Brownton.

So it might bode well for the Lightning that Jenkins also knows little about the Ada Athletics, who play Nisswa at 5 p.m. Friday at Hutchinson in the second round.

Ada (20-5) shaded Dassel-Cokato 4-3 in the opening round, scoring twice in the bottom of the 11th.
