The Blair and Arlington Senior Legion baseball teams will continue Class B Area 3 Tournament play Monday, while the Post 348 Pioneers were eliminated Saturday at Vets Field.

Games were originally supposed to continue Sunday, but were postponed by rain.

After a first-round bye, the Post 154 Bears topped Omaha Roncalli 10-4 Saturday night. Blair jumped out to a 4-0 lead during the first inning and remained in control throughout, earning manager James Bilslend's 100th victory as coach.

The Bears are scheduled to play Bennington at 8 p.m. Monday.

Arlington, meanwhile, defeated Fort Calhoun 11-9 in an elimination game Saturday. The Pioneers scored three seventh-inning runs, but couldn't quite make the comeback.

The Eagles play a 2 p.m. elimination game Monday against Roncalli.

The second Monday game — to be played at 5 p.m. — will be Elkhorn Mount Michael versus West Point.
