White Rock too much for Trail All Stars

The Trail All Stars fell to undefeated White Rock to wrap up the BC Little League championship on Saturday in South Van.

The Trail Major All Stars wrapped up the Little League provincial championship on Saturday falling to undefeated White Rock 19-7 in the last day of round robin action.

After rain wiped out all games on Friday, play would resume on Saturday, with the semifinals and final being set back a day.

White Rock pounded out 19 hits and scored seven runs in the final inning to put an exclamation point on what had been a relatively close game.

Trail jumped out to a 1-0 lead after Kai Birks brought home Kelton Forte who had walked then advanced to third on a single from Luke Miracle. However, White Rock would score six runs in the top of the second inning and another in the third to go up 7-1. Trail would strike for two runs in the bottom of third. Isaac Knight led off with a double, and Forte and Miracle would follow with back-to-back singles to score Knight and Forte would make it 7-3 on a passed ball.

The teams would exchange four runs each in the fourth, but 11-7 was as close as the Trail All Stars would come as White Rock broke it open in the sixth to remain undefeated and finish the tournament at a perfect 6-0.

Miracle went 3-for-4 at the plate for Trail, while Forte was 2-for-3 with two runs scored. Forte also took the loss on the mound for the All Stars, going three innings giving up six hits and seven runs, three earned, while striking out four.

Knight led all Trail hitters in the tournament going 7-for-14 for a .500 average, Forte hit .417 and Miracle .389 while leading the team on the mound with a 2.07 earned run average, nine strike outs, one walk and three earned runs over eight-and-two-thirds innings pitched.

Trail would finish at 1-5 with their only victory coming against Lynn Valley, 6-4, in the opening game. White Rock played 2-4 Little Mountain in the first-versus-fourth seed semifinal on Sunday while 4-2 South Van, took on New Westminster, 4-2, however scores were unavailable.
