END OF THE ROAD

Pearsall 8-10 girls win sectional tourney opener then drop two straight.

By MANUEL AZOCAR III 

Pearsall Little League’s 8-10 Softball All-Stars had their magical run through the postseason come to end at the Texas West Sectional Tournament in Fredericksburg Saturday evening July 8 as the team was eliminated from play.

Having won the Texas West District 21 Tournament with an unbeaten 4-0 mark, the squad looked to continue its dominance at the Sectional event.

After first round play at the three-team event, it appeared Pearsall was in a for another successful run. The girls gutted out a tough 2-1 victory over the Eagle Pass all-stars to move on to the second round.

There, the team ran into a buzzsaw in Greater Helotes. The San Antonio-area all-stars blanked Pearsall 7-0 in the second round contest and moved on to the championship game while Pearsall dropped to the consolation bracket.
