Talk about peaking at the right time.
The Huntington Valley Sooners, a team known for its strong pitching staff during the course of the 2010 Little League regular season, added a potent offense to its arsenal during the District 62 Tournament of Champions.
That one-two punch led to a district banner.
The Sooners breezed to four consecutive victories over the past week, a run capped Saturday by a 10-0 victory over the Ocean View Cubs in the Majors division final at Wardlow Park, home of Huntington Valley Little League.
During the course of the tournament, Huntington Valley scored 48 runs. Sooners opponents? Manager Evan McFetridge said his team allowed only two runs – both unearned, and three runs, total.
The Sooners, the No. 2 team out of Huntington Valley, opened the district tournament with an 11-1 win over Costa Mesa National No. 1. Then came a 14-1 decision over Costa Mesa National No. 2 and a 13-1 semifinal win June 17 over Seaview No. 1. The Cubs were the No. 1 team out of Ocean View.
