Knik wins a thriller

In San Bernardino, California, the 11-12 Knik Little League went to extra innings Wednesday, pulling out a 6-5 win over Montana in West Regional play. Knik scored twice in the bottom of the eighth after Montana took a 5-4 lead in the top half of the inning. Christian Cambridge drove in a pair of runs for Alaska. Knik advances into pool play as the third seed facing Washington State Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

 

No room for error for softballers

The 13-14 girls’ softball team from Anchorage fell to Sunnyside, Arizona 3-2 Wednesday in Tuscon. Despite losing a 2-1 lead, their quest for a Little League title continues with a matchup against Southern California Thursday. However, the road is twice as tough in the elimination bracket. They’ll need to win a pair of games to advance.

 

Season ends for Goldpanners

The Fairbanks Goldpanners’ quest for another National Baseball Congress World Series fell short with a 4-3 loss to the San Diego Waves in Wichita. Scott Hurst starred with three hits and an RBI for Fairbanks. Ryan Clark chipped in with a double, driving in a run. The Fairbanks program has won the title a record six times.
