Little League: Montoursville's pitching shuts down Warrior Run's offense in 12-0 rout of Section 3 Junior final

(Continued)

"Montoursville only got two in the first and that wasn't too bad," said Reynolds. "But as the game wears on and you don't get any runs, the girls probably lost a little bit emotionally there.

"But they fought to the end and I'm proud of them. It was a long season and they did well."

The game went from bad to worse in the second when Montoursville capitalized off two errors to score five runs for a 7-0 lead. A two-run double by Phillips was the big blow in the inning.

Kelsey Dangle's sister, Korin, got in on the action in the fourth inning when she hit an RBI single to give Montoursville a 9-0 lead. Later, a two-run single by No. 9 batter, Kim Foster, led to a three-run sixth that led to the shortened win for Montoursville.

Kelsey Dangle finished the game as strong as she started it in the sixth. Despite allowing a lead-off double by Jackie Vognetz, Dangle struck out the next two batters before she coaxed Alexis Neuer to ground out to first.

"Hat's off to Montoursville. They are a good team," said Reynolds. "They all swing the bat very well, they field the ball well and they make quick throws.

"They deserved to win, and good luck to them at states," added the Warrior Run manager.
