R’ham Orange eliminated, Blue still in – barely

Staff report

GARNER — After a successful first day, the second day of the district All-Star tournament on Saturday in Garner wasn’t as favorable for Rockingham teams.

The Orange team (8-and-under coach pitch) was eliminated today after an 8-6 loss to High Point.

The Blue team fell to Garner 12-7 after being down 8-1 early. The Blue team drops to the losers bracket and plays West Raleigh at 1 p.m. Sunday. That’s the same team the Rockingham squad beat 16-15 Friday night.

If the Blue team wins that one, it’ll face Garner a second time. To win the district championship, the Blue team would have to beat Garner twice.
