WARNER ROBINS -- The West All-Star team from Warner Robins American Little League fought its way to a 14-12 win over Athens Little League on Sunday to win the inaugural 7-8 Rookie state title.
Trailing 4-0 after the first inning, Warner Robins chipped away in each inning.
I told them we just had to keep winning innings, manager Jeremy Avery said.
Andrew Dunford led the way, going 4-for-5 with four RBI, while Cooper Avery was 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBI and Jake Canterbury went 3-for-3 with one RBI.
The championship game was held on the Little League Southeastern Complex field, the first time a tournament other than the 11-12 Southeastern Regionals has been played there.
I just feel awesome, Dunford said.
