Last night under the lights our 11U All Stars faced Rolling Hills LL in the Section 4 semifinals.
The boys struck first in the bottom of the 1st inning scoring a run and kept a tough Rolling Hills team from scoring through the first 3 innings behind Zach, Troy and Daniel on the mound. Rolling Hills put up 2 in the 4th and 3 in the 5th to take a 5-2 lead going into the bottom of the 5th.
WTLL bats came alive against their ace starting with a lead off walk by Isaac and four hits in a row by Daniel, Muller, Mac and Hassan to make it 6-5 going into the top of the 6th. Three outs away from forcing a championship game on Thursday night, the Rolling Hills team added 3 runs with a few hits, few walks and defensive lapses.
Down 8-6 in the bottom of the 6th, Trevor lead off with a walk, Tyler Reed with a base hit and our next 2 hitters couldn't get it done as the game ended on a line drive to the pitcher and doubled up our runner at 2B.
The boys finished their All Star run with a District 27 championship and second place finish in the Section 4 tournament.
A big thank you to Manager Aron Levinson, Coach Mike Strong and Coach Aaron Reed for their dedication to the boys.
We're proud of Jared, Trevor, Tyler R., Isaac, Daniel, Troy, Mac, Zach, Tyler M., Tyler H., Brady, Hasaan and TI on playing hard, playing the game the right way, showing great sportsmanship and representing West Torrance Little League in a successful 2016 All Star run.
