SANTA FE — In the first round of the Little League Southwest Regional tournament, it looked like the White Rock-Los Alamos All-Stars were in good position to advance to the quarterfinals.
WR-LA took a solid 4-0 lead early in the ballgame and the favorites from Vidalia, La., had gotten just one ball out of the infield.
But Vidalia came back to score five unanswered runs, including the tying run in the seventh and the winning run with two outs in the eighth to take a 5-4 extra-inning victory and advance in the regional tournament Friday.
Santa Fe Metro Little League is hosting the regional this year and, as such WR-LA got an automatic entry since it was the champion of Santa Fe Metro’s district.
With Friday’s loss, WR-LA will face elimination in noontime game today. The six-team regional tournament continues through Tuesday at Bicentennial Park.
WR-LA hadn’t played a game since early July, but for most of the early part of the game looked like the sharper team. Unfortunately, WR-LA couldn’t transform its early momentum into much offense.
