In what is becoming “old hat,” the Beardstown 11-12 year old girls are heading to the State Little League Finals beginning this Saturday as they swept Moline in a twin-bill kill by lop-sided scores of 13-1 and 14-0.
Jayna Herzog won the opener with Alyssa Dour picking up the win in the nightcap.
The hometowners brought their big bats to the park as they pounded out a total of 33 hits, scored 27 runs, and pounded out nine extra base hits that included six doubles, two triples and an inside the park home run.
Hillary McGill, one of the leading hitters throughout the tourney said it best when she said, “I like going to state, it’s awesome, and we go a lot.”
