Friday, District 10 Little League Title Game

After an incredible finish to Thursday night’s game between the last two remaining teams in the District 10 Little League Tournament, they are set to face off once again for the title tonight.

Utica and Tri-County (10-11-12) Little League will meet for a third and final time in the double-elimination tournament. The only defeat of each of the two teams came against the other.

At the start of the District 10 tournament, Tri-County sent Utica to the losing pool and then walked away undefeated. Utica won the losing group and entered Thursday’s encounter with their backs to the wall, needing to beat Tri-County twice to claim the championship.

Utica got that first “W” on Thursday after overcoming a superb Tri-County rally.

Having built a 13-2 lead in the fourth inning, Utica was only one out away from ending the game under the 10-run leniency rule. But, Tri-County refused to take it easy, helped by a two-out brace and punting that made it 13-5. Utica added a run late in the fourth – then things got really interesting.

Tri-County would rally all the way back, posting a 9th-place lead in the fifth inning and tying the game at 14-all. Utica managed to ride out the storm and refocus, scoring twice in the bottom of the fifth and finally halting Tri-County’s offense in the top of the sixth to claim the victory.
