Cedar Mills plays for pride and plays well
The local all-stars finish pool play at 2-2
PORTLAND - Call it guts.
Call it heart.
Call it perseverance.
Call it Cedar Mill.
Cedar Mill's Majors all-stars came from behind to win with another gritty performance Monday in the Little League Softball World Series at Alpenrose, using a six-run fourth inning to rally past Canada's Layritz Little League of British Columbia 9-6 and close pool play at 2-2.
Despite the team's solid play at the Series, Cedar Mill finished third in its pool and did not make the tournament semifinals.
"We're pretty happy (with our play), but we're a little bummed out we didn't make the semifinals," said Cedar Mill shortstop Madeline Fey, who doubled home two runs in her team's watershed fourth inning.
Cedar Mill ends its Series in the fifth/sixth-place game at 1 p.m. Wednesday against Gilroy Little League of Gilroy, Calif.
