North Whidbey ousted from tournament / 8-10 baseball

Splitting games over two days didn’t bode well for the North Whidbey Little League 8-10 baseball team.

North Whidbey lost 15-12 in extra innings to Anacortes in the District 11 tournament opener Thursday and Friday in Langley, and then fell to Sedro-Woolley 13-5 Friday and Saturday and was eliminated from the playoffs.

The Anacortes game was suspended because of darkness with the teams tied at 11 after six innings.

Anacortes tacked on four runs when play resumed Friday, and North Whidbey countered with only one in its half of the seventh inning, leaving the bases loaded.

Tristan Hamblin doubled and scored North Whidbey’s only run in the extra inning.

Later Friday, North Whidbey trailed Sedro-Woolley 8-4 in the fourth inning when the game was halted and the park cleared after a report of a man with a gun was roaming the area.

The man was not found when the park was searched.

Sedro-Woolley outscored North Whidbey 5-1 when the game was completed Saturday.

The NW offense was led by Parker Hall, who doubled and scored. Daniel Lee added two singles and scored a run, and Hamblin singled and scored.
