Little League in full playoff swing

The playoff run for local Little League teams is in full swing across the river.
However, it may be a quick one for all three 11-12 year old boys’ teams, who face elimination in their nine-team, double-knockout format.
The ninth-ranked Lions upended eighth-ranked (and fellow local squad) pinewoodsports.com 17-15 on Friday, but then lost 12-5 to Wherley Motors on Monday.
Wherley’s jumped out to a 7-0 after the first two innings and never looked back.
“I liked the way the kids played,” said Lions’ co-coach Murnie Allen, whose team will hit the field in a do-or-die game against an undetermined opponent tomorrow.
“We only gave up one big inning to [Wherley’s] that cost us.”
But pinewoodsports.com saw their season end last night after losing 7-4 to Northern Lumber.
Super One of here—ranked seventh—also face a must-win tonight after Monday’s 13-7 loss to Myer’s.
Meanwhile, Shannon’s Plumb-ing and Heating—the lone Cana-dian entry in the six-team, 9-10 year old division—finished the regular season with a 6-1-1 record to clinch the second seed.
They faced Moose Lodge last night to begin their double-knockout tournament and won 6-5.
Their next game is Sunday.
The season was supposed to end this week but constant rain delays pushed it back a week.
