Little League Report
Opening day was delayed until Sunday in the game between Elmont South 7 and Century 21. Francisco Rivera took the mound for Century 21 pitching six complete innings for the win. The bats came alive in the bottom of the fourth for Century 21 scoring all five of their runs. Leading off the inning with a triple was Nick Kisarewski, Francisco drove him in with a single, followed by solid hits by Marc, Keith, John, George, Mike K. and Louis. Fine defense by catcher John Tupper throwing out three base runners trying to steal and then tagging out a runner of the plate proved crucial in Century 21's victory. Final score Century 21 scored 5 Elmont South 7 scored 1.
