Corbin White and W’burg remain alive; W’burg and North Laurel eliminated

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons and John Stepp for the Times-Tribune

Williamsburg kept their hopes of reaching the state tournament alive in Little League All-Star action while Corbin White did the same in Minor League All-Star play Thursday.

Williamsburg defeated Wayne County 7-5 while Corbin White cruised past Hazard/Perry No. 2, 10-0.

In other action, Williamsburg's Minor League All-Stars fell to McCreary County, 13-2, while North Laurel was eliminated by Harlan in Little League action, losing, 7-6.

District 4 Little League Tournament

Williamsburg 7, Wayne County 5


Since their opening round loss to Knox County in the Area 3 Tournament, the Williamsburg 12-year-old All Stars have been living their baseball lives one game at a time.

After their fourth straight victory on Thursday, a 7-5 decision over Wayne County, Jerry Croley’s team is one step away from playing in the loser’s bracket finals.

Williamsburg took an early lead thanks to a pair of three-run innings, but had to hold on in the later innings, as Wayne County wasn’t about to go down easy.

After the win over Wayne County, Croley stressed the fact he’s tried to keep his team grounded by stressing the importance of not looking ahead and worrying about the next team on the schedule.

“We just keep coming out and having fun,” Croley said. “These kids really do have fun out there and we’ve stressed to them that we have to take things one game at a time, no matter what the situation is.

“We were able to hit the ball early on and get some runs, but they made a little run on us later in the game,” he added. “Our kids kept their cool and withstood the storm and we were able to get another win.”

Harlan 7, North Laurel 6

The North Laurel 12-year-old All Stars were eliminated in heartbreaking fashion Thursday, as Harlan rallied for four runs, including a walk-off single by T.J. Bryant to give his team the 7-6 win.

North Laurel jumped ahead 5-1 in the top of the second, but Harlan trimmed the gap with runs in the third and fourth innings to make the score 5-3.

A run by North Laurel in the fifth inning made the score 6-3, where it stayed until the bottom of the sixth.

North Laurel led the entire game up until Bryant’s game-winning hit gave Harlan the lead and the win.

District 4 Minor League Tournament

Corbin 10, Hazard/Perry No. 2 0


The Corbin Minor League All Stars advanced to the second round of the loser’s bracket of the District 2 Tournament with a 10-0 victory of Hazard-Perry No. 2 on Thursday.

Corbin put together a complete game with 14 hits and no errors in the field, combined with superb pitching on their way to the shut out.

“I was scared to death on every pitch because they (Hazard-Perry) are a really good baseball team,” Corbin coach Jody Botner said. “They beat us here a few weeks ago and this game could have gone south for us really quick. We got lucky.”

McCreary County 13, W'burg 2

The 11-run loss eliminated Williamsburg from the tournament.

Bobby Zeccuini and Jackson Osborne each scored runs for Williamsburg. Jeremiah Wilson also added a single.

“We fought hard,” Williamsburg coach Brant Poore said. “We came out and got down early, but we never gave up.

“I’m proud of my guys. You win some and lose some,” he added. “We’ve played well coming into this. In tournament play you’ve got to hit and you got to field. Tonight we didn’t really do either, but that happens.”
