Loudoun South added an exclamation point to the end of their undefeated district tournament, defeating Lower Loudoun National in the Little League championship game 22-6.
Lower Loudoun National had won four straight games following their round one loss, emerging from the loser’s bracket with a tremendous offensive force. Justin Robles did most of the damage for LLLLN knocking out four homeruns in just seven at-bats, including two in the championship game.
Still, Loudoun South had an answer as their own Kyle Schofield also blasted two homers in the game: a three-run shot and a grand slam.
Drake Logan got the win for LSLL, throwing a complete game allowing runs in only two innings.
Both teams played well throughout the tournament and should be proud of their effort.
Loudoun South will represent District 16 in the VA State Tournament hosted in District 6 by Olive Branch Little League. The tournament begins Friday, July 20.
UPDATE 7/24: In the quarterfinals, LSLL’s first three batters unloaded on D-9 DTQ with back-to-back-to-back jacks in a 9-0 win. LSLL will play D-5 Atlee on Wednesday at 1:00PM in the State semifinals.
