The Benson Junior Legion Bandits finished their inaugural season in impressive fashion, going 7-1 during eight league games against KMS, Montevideo, Granite Falls, and ACGC, losing only to Granite Falls on a hot steamy evening earlier this summer. The playoffs were set to begin soon and the Bandits were guaranteed one of the higher seeds and a first-round game on Chief’s Field in Benson.
