HALFWAY - Halfway scored five runs in the top of the sixth inning Monday on its way to a 10-4 win over Frederick American in the deciding game of the Maryland Section 1 9-and-10-Year-Old Tournament at Marty Snook Park.
Halfway advances to the double-elimination Maryland State Tournament this weekend at American Little League in Hagerstown. Halfway will play the Section 3 winner Saturday at 5 p.m. The Section 2 and Section 4 winners open the tournament at 1 p.m.
"This is a wonderful team to coach," Halfway manager Scott Herbert said. "I have not been around a complete group of kids on a team that can hit, play defense and is fundamentally sound from the first player to the last player."
Halfway's five-run outburst in the the sixth consisted of an RBI single by Josh Green, a two-run double by Dylan Zimmerman, a throwing error that scored Zimmerman and an RBI single by Chris McSherry.
