The Minnesota American Legion State Championship game between Eden Prairie and Lino Lakes (Centennial) was CANCELLED.
Heavy rain due to a severe storm left the field unplayable.
Eden Prairie was ultimately declared the champion by virtue of its 4-0 record in the tournament.
Lino Lakes (Centennial) is the runner-up with a 6-1 record.
Both teams advance to the American Legion Central Region Tournament in Dickinson, N.D. which begins later this week.
