After two weeks of play, three local Little League All-Star teams survived and are moving on to Section 10 tournament play this weekend.
The Ocean View Little League (12-year-old) and 10/11 All-Stars, and the Huntington Valley 9/10 All-Stars, each kept their seasons alive by emerging as champions in the District 62 All-Star Tournament. Also claiming a division title was Westminster, which won two straight games in a championship series with Huntington Valley.
The Section 10 tournament begins Saturday for all four District 62 champions.
Little League (12-year-old) All-Stars
Ocean View is headed to the Section 10 Tournament after defeating Huntington Valley, 7-4, in the District 62 final July 7.
As it had in three previous tournament games, Ocean View seemed to be cruising to another big win in the final but saw Huntington Valley score four runs in the sixth inning to pull to within 7-4. Huntington Valley, however, could get no closer, as Ocean View relief pitcher Nick Pratto was able to close out the win.
