Tough goings for District 5
Dreams of a Big League World Series championship for North Louisiana’s District 5 team were apparently dashed Sunday as a furious comeback attempt was denied.
The host District 1 team from Easley, S.C., took a big early lead and then fought off the attempted rally to take an 11-9 win over District 5 in a 4:14 marathon.
That rally fell just inches short, literally. Shortstop Joe Robbins blasted a shot to deep to left center that would have been a walkoff home run for District 5, but instead the District 1 center fielder caught it at the fence.
