B-E knocks North Whidbey out of district tournament / 9-11 baseball

After a strong start, North Whidbey’s offense went silent and the local club fell 9-5 to Burlington-Edison in the 9-11 Little League baseball district playoffs Friday, June 22, at Windjammer Park.

Burlington-Edison swept the best-of-three series and picked up a berth in the state tournament with the win.

Burlington-Edison scored three runs in the top of the first inning, then North Whidbey matched that effort behind singles by David Smith and Tripp Radford and a double by Trevor Sadler.

North Whidbey tacked on two more runs in the second inning to go up 5-3 when Brady Anderson and Taylor Stidham were hit by pitches and Radford singled.

From that point, North Whidbey couldn’t punch across another run while Burlington-Edison produced two more three-run innings, the third and fifth, to win.

Radford finished with four hits and Sadler added a single to his double.
