After a thriller on Thursday, Friday night's showdown for the District 10 Little League crown did not disappoint.
In a contest that saw five-lead changes, it was Tri-County who prevailed, again bolstered by a big-run-rally in the fifth-inning.
After Tri-County opened the scoring in the top of the first, Utica answered with two in their half to take a 2-1 advantage. After a scoreless second, Tri-County hopped back on top with two runs in the third, before Utica pushed ahead to take a 6-3 lead after three. Utica would add another run in the fourth, up 7-3, before Tri-County offense went wild in the fifth for the second consecutive night.
A double in the gap splits the outfielders for the final the lead change of the night, as Tri-County goes from down 7-6 to up 8-7 with one swing.
Tri-County would add another run before the inning was over to take a 9-7 after the top of the fifth.
Unlike Thursday's game, Utica was unable to answer in the late innings. Tri-County added two in the sixth and that would be the final score, 11-7.
Tri-County advances to play the champion of District 37 on Tuesday night.
