The District 22 Junior American Legion playoffs are wrapping up in Valmeyer and Alton Post 126 is still in the fight.
The Alton juniors battle Highland No. 1 at 3:30 p.m. today. A win means a quick turnaround, as Post 126 would face Fairview Heights/Swansea at 5:30 p.m. in the finals.
Fairview Heights/Swansea is the last undefeated team, so if it wins tonight it will be named District 22 champion. A loss for Fairview Heights/Swansea tonight means a winner-take-all contest at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Alton has advanced this far by defeating Bethalto 6-2 and Belleville 8-2 on Saturday. A 3-1 loss to Fairview Heights/Swansea on Sunday tagged Post 126 with its first loss of the tournament and redirected it into the loser's bracket.
The games today and possible game on Tuesday will be played at Valmeyer's Borsch Park.
