This time there was no controversy as Sharpsburg fairly and squarely defeated Conococheague 8-7 on Friday in the losers’ bracket final of the Maryland District 1 9-10 Tournament. With runners on first and second and no outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, Ben Burgan hit a deep fly ball to left field for a game-winning RBI single, breaking the 7-7 tie that had stood since the top of the fourth. “That was huge. That’s what we needed,” Sharpsburg manager Steve Mason said.

In an early twist to the Maryland District 1 9-10 Tournament, Conococheague ended up as the host for Saturday’s game against West End instead of Sharpsburg. After a 13-11 loss to Sharpsburg on Friday, Conococheague protested that an illegal player was used by Sharpsburg. “There was a protest lodged for illegal use of a player, the phone call was made to the Eastern Region tournament committee in Bristol, Conn., and it was sent on to Little League headquarters in Williamsport, Pa.,” said District 1 director Larry Hammond.

Winners never quit. Defense wins championships. Championships don't come easily. Pick a favorite cliche. Then, paste it on Conococheague. After an up-and-down week that included a no-hitter and a two-day extra inning affair, Conococheague emerged victorious Sunday night, beating Maugansville 10-8 to secure the Maryland District 1 Junior tournament championship. “These last two games we played, Maugansville gave us a handful.” Conococheague manager Jeff Forsythe said.

Practice makes perfect. That's great in theory, but in reality, perfection is a mythical goal, like a rainbow's pot of gold or a cloud's silver lining. Practice - at best - makes pretty good. Conococheague's 11-12 All-Stars can attest to the virtues of practice. They admit they had a lot of it after winning the District 1 title to qualify for last week's state tournament. They were tired of trying to be perfect. It was boring. They wanted to play real baseball again.
