Through mid-week, one local Little League All-Star team — Ocean View's Majors All-Stars — was in the hunt for a California Section 10 tournament championship. Four other local teams, Ocean View's 10/11 and 9-10 All-Stars, Huntington Valley's Junior All-Stars and Robinwood's Senior All-Stars, saw their postseason runs come to an end earlier this week.
Ocean View, which went undefeated to win the District 62 championship on July 6, suffered its first postseason loss Tuesday when Rancho Mission Viejo (District 68) scored a 6-5 victory in Section 10 tournament action at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley.
Rancho Mission Viejo staved off elimination with the win and set up a championship game final Wednesday night. The score wasn't available at press time.
Ocean View started the tournament Saturday with a 5-4 win over Aliso Viejo (District 55). On Sunday, Ocean View scored another one-run victory, 2-1 over Rancho Mission Viejo.
