GIG HARBOR, Wash. – The Camas Little League 10/11 All-Star team (2-1 at State) won their second game against Federal Way, the defending State champions, Monday night, 7-6, in an intense battle.
Team Manager Andy Ott said Camas pitcher Tyler Forner started on the mound and went 2/3 of an inning and was relieved by Kolby Broadbent, who went the distance and closed the game.
Federal Way led 5-0 after the first half inning, hoping to defend their State title. Camas ended up scoring two runs at the bottom of the first with hits from Drew Ott, Broadbent, and Forner. At the top of two, it was 5-2 Federal Way.
Federal Way added a run and so did Camas making it 6-3 at the bottom of the third inning. In the next inning, Broadbent hit a big two-run home run over left field, tightening the game, 6-5.
In the bottom of the fourth with two outs Camas hitter Tayler Shega had a seven-pitch walk to get on base, while Michael Quintana subbing in for AJ Ueber, had two strikes and two outs and hit a two-run home run to left center for the 7-6 lead.
Broadbent closed out the deal in the top of the fifth and sixth with some good defense behind him. Christian Knuth caught the final out on a fly ball to left with a runner on first.
Camas had hits from Ott, Broadbent, Quintana, Forner, Ueber, and Jackson Gibbs. Broadbent struck out 3.
Camas will play their fourth game this Thursday at 7 pm against Bainbridge.
