Rainy Saturday extends Cal Ripken Youth Baseball Tournament
Games scheduled for Monday could determine champions
CHARLESTON - The Cal Ripken Youth Baseball State Tournament has been extended through Monday due to wet weekend weather.
Teams were able to play Sunday, but the championship rounds had to be moved to Monday, and possibly later under one potential set of circumstances.
On Sunday the 10U West Ashley All-stars (4-1) kept themselves in the hunt for a championship, eliminatinig Gaffney from the torunament with a 12-6 win.
The West Ashely team also eliminated Boiling Springs from the tournament in the team's second game today, 4-1. Boiling Springs had earlier eliminated Westside 9-8.
The undefeated Goose Creek team (3-0) handed the Mount Pleasant All-stars (2-1) its first loss on Saturday 6-5 after going into an extra seventh inning to notch the win.
West Ashley will face Mount Pleasant in yet another elimination game at 6 p.m. Monday at St. Andrews. The winner of that game will face Goose Creek for the championship. If Goose Creek loses that game a final game will be scheduled to crown the winner of the double-elimination tournament.
The 9U West Ashley All-stars will face North Agusta 6 p.m. on Monday Lighthart Field at St. Andrews. The North Agusta Team eliminated the Goose Creek team 16-0 on Sunday to advance to the championship round.
An undefeated West Ashley team needs a single win tomorrow to win the tournament. North Agusta will have to to win twice back-to-back to take home the trophy. If North Agusta wins the 6 p.m. game the teams will head back onto the field at 8 p.m. to settle everything.
