Oregon ends West Seattle season; 7-3 loss in NW Regional tournament
By Tim Clinton
West Seattle reached the end of the road in San Bernardino, Calif. Wednesday.
The Westsiders were stopped by Oregon, 7-3, in a loser's bracket game of the Northwest Regional Little League baseball all-star tournament.
A win would have advanced them to Friday's loser's bracket final with a chance to reach the championship.
Instead the Washington state championship team's stay in California ended after three games with a fourth place finish.
West Seattle took a 16-6 loss to Idaho to open the tournament Sunday, but rebounded to beat Alaska by an 11-2 score Tuesday before playing Oregon on Wednesday.
Matthew Henning-Dierickx had two RBI and had two hits along with TJ Buehring against Oregon.
Eli Parker struck out two in 2.1 innings of work. Miles Gosztola had one strikout in relief. Caden Fahy threw 1.2 innings.
