Sharpsburg continued to bounce back from its second-round loss, eliminating defending champion Conococheague 9-4 in a losers' bracket game Monday in the Maryland District 1 11-12 tournament. “Seems like since I've been involved in the league, we have a habit of having to come back,” said Sharpsburg manager Scott Bare. Sharpsburg didn't have to fight back in this game, scoring three runs in the top of the first off four hits, including an RBI single by Lane Gay. In the second, Jon Grimm tacked on another run when he walked, advanced on a groundout and a passed ball, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Dalton Shank to make it 4-0.
