With a 14-3 loss to Campbellsville on July 2, the season for the 9-10 year-old Washington County Little League all-stars came to an end.
Before the first out could be recorded in the top of the first, WC pitcher Michael Chastain walked the first two Campbellsville batters he faced, then allowed a two-run double to Quentin Goodin. Addison Riney was brought in to replace Chastain.
Campbellsville added another run to go ahead 3-0.
In the bottom of the first, D.J. Keeling led off with a double and was batted in by Evan Mattingly. That made the score 3-1 in favor of Campbellsville.
After adding two runs in the second and third innings, Campbellsville took a commanding 7-2 lead before WC scored another run in the fourth.
Trae Coulter was brought in to pitch for Washington County, but the Campbellsville bats were too much. WC was behind 9-3 going into the top of the sixth.
Jacob Howard took the mound replacing Coulter, but Campbellsville added five more runs before WC got their final at-bat.
In the bottom of the sixth, Chastain and Steven Thompson both struck out. Michael Wheatley got on base with a single before D.T. Yocum struck out for the last out of the game. The final score was 14-3 Campbellsville, who now advance to the state tournament in Louisville.
"I think the boys did really well this season," said Washington County head coach Paul Coulter after the game. "It just didn't go in our favor tonight. Last year we got beat out in the semi-finals, this year we made it to the final game. We're very proud of all the players."
