West End and Hancock staged a slugfest at West End in the Maryland District 1 10-11 Little League Tournament on Saturday.
After matching each other run for run throughout, it was Hancock that ended up on top, 14-13.
Hancock will travel to Halfway in a winner's bracket game Monday, while West End will host Valley in a losers' bracket game. Both games will start at 6 p.m.
Both teams got started early, trading a pair of first-inning 3-run homers by West End's Cameron Davis and Hancock starting pitcher Cameron Castle.
"I was excited, I wanted to win, and I wanted that home run to hit the highway," said Castle.
Hancock struck again in the second, as wild pitches allowed Dalton Trail, Chris Russell and Smith to score to knock out West End starter Derrick Hughes for a 6-3 lead.
