Coon Rapids/Andover Little League Team Falls 11-0, Plays Elimination Game Monday

Maui team defeats New Jersey to advance in Little League World Series

No Canadian team has ever won the Little League World Series despite appearing in every tournament since 1952. He struck out six and walked two, allowing no hits.

After two scoreless innings, the Caribbean doubled its lead in the bottom of the fifth with an RBI single from Deshandro Tromp, a two-run error that scored Castillo and Tromp and an RBI triple from Pe.son Revierre.

Timmy Piasentin started on the mound for Coquitlam, lasting 4 2/3 innings. Dorwart gave up Revierre's triple before inducing a pop out in foul territory in relief.

Monday's loss ends a wild ride that began three weeks ago for Coquitlam with a 5-3 win over Little Mountain to win the B.C. Provincial Little League title and a trip to Ancaster, Ont. for the nationals.

The team from Wailuku Maui advanced to the Little League World Series after winning the West Regional Title on August 10, in San Bernardino, California. The Southeast team is also undefeated so far in the tournament with two wins under their belt.

Freking, 12, plays second base for Coon Rapids-Andover, who were representing the Midwest in the LLWS. In order to prevent blowouts, if a team is up by 10 or more runs at four innings or later they call the game. They had a total of nine hits throughout the game.

Triplett said that is just a bonus to playing in the games.

"The boys are really excited to play in the big park", Piasentin said of the facility, which is the centrepiece of Williamsport's Little League complex and can accommodate up to 40,000 fans in the stands and the hillside beyond the outfield fence.
