The Colville 10-U All Stars had their first postseason tournament of the year this past weekend, and while they went winless in four games at the Pullman Summer Classic, the experience gained will prove invaluable for upcoming tournaments.
On Friday, in game one Colville fell behind to Kennewick 13-0 after three innings, but an eight run fourth inning, keyed by two hits and three RBIs by Ethan Redberg, put Colville right back into the game 13-8. In the fifth Colville managed to get a couple of runners on, but were unable to complete the comeback and Kennewick escaped with the win.
Saturday saw Colville start the day with a tough game against the Spokane Musketeers, the Indians fell behind 20-0 in the third inning, but did push across three runs in the fourth inning to take a little bit of the sting off of a 20-3 loss. Colville didn’t have much time to think about the loss as they had their second game of the day four hours later against Orofino. Orofino took an early 2-0 lead, but Colville battled back in the top of the third, tying the game at 2, on a Noah Rader RBI double. In the bottom of the inning Orofino pushed across another run to retake the lead 3-2. In the bottom of the fifth Bridger Lewis and Dawson Baribault scored to give Colville its first lead of the tournament 4-3, but Orofino answered back with three runs in the bottom of the inning to go back in front 6-4 and kept Colville off the board in the top of the sixth to take the win.
In Sunday’s finale Colville faced off against Chewelah and, despite getting off to a good start, the Indians were unable to hold off the Cougars in a 5-4 loss. Colville scored three runs in the top of the first on RBI’s by Marvin Holland and Mason Beardsley, but in the bottom of the first starting pitcher Bridger Lewis was knocked out of the game when he was hit in the ankle by a line drive, but Mason Beardsley came in and pitched four innings of strong relief. Chewelah kept pecking away at the Colville lead, single runs in the first, third, and fourth innings tied the game at 3. Colville went back out in front 4-3 with a run in the top of the fifth, but in the bottom of the inning, Chewelah scored twice to move back out in front and held Colville scoreless in the sixth to take the win 5-4.
Both the Colville 12-U and 10-U teams will be playing again this week at the Mike Carpenter Memorial Tournament beginning this Thursday at Chataqua in Chewelah.
