Local Roundup: Bear River 9-10s off to blazing beginning

Bear River’s 9-10 year old All-Stars opened the District 11 Area 2 tournament at Foresthill in fine fashion Thursday, scoring a 14-0 win over Grass Valley in four innings of play.

Cole Huckaby got the start and the win on the mound, striking out eight and allowing one hit.

Huckaby also had 4 RBIs at the plate, leading an offense that also featured RBIs from the likes of Donald Brennan, Nick Mansuetti, Brett Solomon and Isaac Van Patten.

“It was pretty easy the first time, but you never know what happens the next time,” said Bear River manager Lance Mansuetti, pointing to his team’s second-round matchup.

Bear River will face Newcastle in a 5:30 p.m. game at Foresthill Divide Little League. That game will be preceded by a Penn Valley vs. Grass Valley matchup at 2:30 p.m.

Today’s 9-10 All-Star action will feature host Foresthill against Nevada City in a 5:30 p.m. game. Nevada City advanced to the second round of the winner’s bracket with a 12-11 tournament-opening win over Sierra Foothills on Monday.


Coaches may file their game reports by phone (477-4240) or by e-mail (brianh@theunion.com). Photographers are also encouraged to submit their shots and may do so in a JPEG format. Submission deadline is 10 p.m.
