CAMBRIDGE, Md. -- Six players had at least two hits as Maugansville rolled to a 9-2 lead before holding on for a 9-7 victory over Waldorf on Wednesday in the Maryland Senior League State Tournament losers' bracket at J. Walter Park.
"We're very confident in our hitting," Maugansville manager Dan Dopson said. "We came into this game confident we could hit these guys. The kids were feeling good about it because we'd already beat these guys once (8-4 in the first round)."
Maugansville will play the Talbot/Elkton loser tonight at 7 in the losers' bracket final. The winner will play in the championship round on Friday needing to defeat the Talbot/Elkton winner twice to win the state title.
"We're having a ball," Dopson said. "We hope to get (to the championship round). We want to win it. We're having to be very creative with our pitching at this point. All the kids are very positive about things, and that helps to go in with a positive attitude."
