The Duluth Huskies' Keith Curcio had a hit and two runs to help lead the North to a 7-5 victory over the South at the 19th annual Northwoods League All-Star Game on Tuesday night before 2,789 fans at Carson Park in Eau Claire, Wis.

Both teams scored four runs in the second inning before the North took the lead for good when Willmar's Michael Suchy doubled in Curcio in the top of the fourth. The North tacked on two insurance runs in the sixth before the South came back with a run in the bottom of the ninth, credited to the Huskies' Nate Carter.

Carter was relieved by Adam Dian, who immediately gave up an RBI single. With two runners aboard and the winning run at the plate, Dian got a strikeout and fielder's choice to end the game.

North shortstop Carter Burgress robbed his high school teammate, Boomer White, of a single on the final play with a diving stop. Burgress had two runs, two hits and an RBI in being named the game's most valuable player.

The Huskies' third All-Star, pitcher Clay Chapman, did not play. Curcio, Carter and Chapman all hail from Florida Southern College.
