The game was a battle of the two unbeaten teams in the tournament, which is double-elimination.

Aitkin then faced Esko, who won an elimination game earlier in the day vs Eveleth-Gilbert. The Eskomos battled back from a 4-0 deficit to win 5-4.

Esko will face Duluth Marshall for the Section 7AA Title on Thursday in Proctor. Esko must win twice. Duluth Marshall only needs to win once.

Weather caused the games in Hibbing to be moved up and in the case of Esko vs Aitkin, delayed for a bit. Rain also caused a delay in Duluth for the Section 7A Tournament. Ely edged Cook County 4-0 in an elimination game earlier in the day. The South Ridge vs Carlton game was suspended in the third inning with South Ridge up 2-0. It will resume on Wednesday at 4 p.m. The loser of that game will then face Ely afterward in an elimination game.

The Section 7AAA games in Princeton were all delayed until Wednesday. Hermantown was supposed to meet Chisago Lakes and Grand Rapids would also play later on. Those games are now Wednesday. Duluth Denfeld already has a spot in the Section 7AAA Title Game.

In Section 7AAAA Duluth East saw their season end with a 1-0 loss to Blaine.

In Wisconsin, Northwestern fell 12-7 to Antigo in the Division 2, Sectional 1 Semifinals.
