WILLIAMSPORT -- Conococheague finished an undefeated four-game run through the Maryland District I Junior League Tournament by beating Valley 14-5 on Saturday in the championship game.
Conococheague advances to the Maryland State Tournament, beginning July 24 near Baltimore.
"These kids worked hard and played straight up as a team," Conococheague manager Jamie Martin said. "The run production was great. The kids stepped up when they needed to. We have done it over and over in every game. I think we ended up beating a really good team in Valley. We ended up playing them twice and beating them twice."
Brandon Toloso struck out six in 5 1/3 scoreless innings of relief to get the win.
"I was setting them up for the curveball," Toloso said. "My curveball was dominant. I think that I pretty much threw strikes consistently. It's great to win the championship. It took a team effort to win. We did a good job of hitting the ball."
