Softball: WR splits its tournament games, stays alive at state

-A A +A

SANTA FE — The White Rock Senior Softball All-Stars finished on both ends of a pair of nail-biters Saturday, but remain alive in the state Little League championship tournament.

White Rock split its two games at Franklin Miles Park Saturday, falling in the first contest to Silver City in the morning and defeating Isleta in an elimination game a few hours later.

Silver City, which is 2-0 in the tournament heading into today’s play, will face White Rock for the state championship title. White Rock will need to win the 10 a.m. game to force a 1-game playoff between the two teams for the state championship, while Silver City needs to win only one or the other of the two contests to earn the title and a trip to the regional tournament in Louisiana.

Today’s tournament game will be played at Franklin Miles Park. Should White Rock prevail this morning, it would force a 1 p.m. title contest.

In its first game of the tournament Saturday, White Rock had several chances to put together runs but couldn’t find the hits when it needed them.

Meanwhile, Silver City’s All-Stars nearly got caught getting too cute shuffling its pitching lineup in the morning contest.
