Little League 12s take first four in Glasgow

-A A +A

Tourney pushed back to Friday, Saturday

Pitching and home runs sparked Campbellsville’s 10-12-year-old Little League All Stars to four wins in the District 5 Tournament at Beaver Trail Park in Glasgow.
Campbellsville, which will be the top seed in the semifinals tomorrow, still had a pool game vs. Washington County, which was rained out on Wednesday. That pushes the single-elimination tourney back until Friday and Saturday.
Coach Curt Gaskins squad opened play on Saturday with a 10-0 romp past Adair County before no-hitting Marion County 13-0 on Sunday.
Starting pitcher Hayden Jones also hit a pair of homers while Camden Anderson went 2-2 with a walk and Deondre Weathers doubled and Landon Robison, Weston Mattingly and Jarred Mays singled vs. Adair County and lead-off batter Hunter Vaughn walked twice.
Robison and Anderson also pitched for Campbellsville.
Against Marion County, Robison (2 1/3 innings) and Anderson (1 2/3) combined on a no-hitter while Anderson had three hits (single, double and home run) and Weathers hit a grand-slam home run, Mattingly a two-run shot and Jones a double.
The locals led Glasgow 12-1 early on Monday, but needed a late rally once the home team had tied the game 14-14 in the top of the sixth.
Hunter Vaughn singled and Weathers was intentionally walked before Mattingly’s two-out double, his fourth hit, provided the 15-14 win.
Vaughn, who got the win in relief, and Weathers finished with two hits apiece while Jones doubled and Anderson, Robison and Nate Meier had singles.
Campbellsville rolled past Boyle County 15-3 on Tuesday with Mattingly and Anderson combining for the win.
Jones hit two home runs with five runs batted in while Mattingly hit a two-run long ball.
Anderson had two doubles, Vaughn two singles and Weathers and Dakota Harris one hit apiece.
