Walnut’s Pinto 8U team finished up their undefeated run through the East Region District 2 Tournament with a hard fought win over a tough West Covina Blue team, 11-7 in extra innings. The win clinched the District 2 championship and assured them of a spot in the Region Tournament in two weeks (they also don’t have to play in this week’s Sections).
On the field next to the Pinto game, the Walnut Shetland 6U team was also facing a West Covina Blue team but the game wasn’t as close and the 6’s won 18-12. The win gives them a rematch with the only team that beat them in the tournament, Whittier Navy. The 6’s will need to beat Whittier Navy twice on Tuesday night to take their District 2 championship.
