White Rock wins first two games in district tournament
White Rock is undefeated through its first two games of the Little League 11/12 Year District 3 Baseball Tournament, which is underway this week at South Surrey Athletic Park.
In their opening game of the five-team tournament Saturday, White Rock beat Langley 5-1, and a day later, the host team followed that victory with an even more convincing performance – a 10-0 win over Coquitlam, in a game that was called after four innings on account of the mercy rule.
White Rock’s third game of the District 3 showdown was played Wednesday evening against Whalley, but results were not available by press deadline.
The district tournament is the first step towards a potential berth in the prestigious Little League World Series, which is held annually in Williamsport, Penn. every August.
The winner of the this week’s tournament advances to provincials, and from there, the B.C. champion will move on to nationals. The national champion then represents Canada at the World Series.
White Rock’s 11/12-year-old all-stars have twice advanced to Williamsport, in 2007 and 2008.
