It was still a ballgame in the late going Sunday, but then it all broke loose over the final two innings of the Laguna Beach 9/10 year-old All-Stars' District 55 All-Star Tournament debut against Aliso Viejo at Chapparosa Park in Laguna Niguel. Aliso Viejo scored eight runs over the last two innings to put the game out of reach, a 12-0 final that forced Laguna into an elimination game Tuesday against Rancho Niguel. But a win Tuesday would advance Laguna to another elimination game at 7:30 p.m. today against Lake Forest American.

ALISO VIEJO ? The Laguna Beach Little League 10/11 All-Star team is nothing if not resilient. So, after a top of the sixth inning that seemed to go on forever, the team was still going to go down swinging. Michael Shurtleff and Dane Olson scored in the bottom of the sixth inning, but these were just footnotes in a 28-3 Aliso Viejo victory in the second round of the District 55 All-Star Tournament winner?s bracket Wednesday night at Woodfield Park. Laguna Beach is dropped to the consolation bracket, where it will have an elimination game Monday at 6 p.m., also at Woodfield Park.

Errors plagued the Laguna Beach Little League 10/11 All-Star team in its final District 55 tournament game and those miscues translated into a 12-2 loss to Rancho Niguel at the Laguna Hills Sports Complex. Garrett Burk pitched three strong innings at the outset for Laguna, allowing only one earned run while striking out five. Burk left the game after the third inning and over the course of the next three innings, Laguna pitching yielded nine walks. One highlight for Laguna came from the bat of Robert Clemons, who hit a towering home run in the top of the fourth inning.

The season may have come to an end for the Laguna Beach Little League 9-and-10-year-old All-Star team this week, but the foundation for a bright future might have been set. So says Coach Kent Sveningson, whose All-Star team was highly competitive in three District 55 All-Star Tournament games that saw the local team win one of those contests. Laguna, which opened the important district tournament Saturday with a 12-2 mercy-rule win over Newport Beach National, saw its postseason end with a 21-20 loss to Northwood on Monday, which followed a 9-5 setback Sunday against Rancho Niguel.
