MONTREAL - The NDG Major Lynx showed that they were in a class of their own in the province this weekend, capping off a perfect tournament with a 15-0 victory over Valleyfield.
Its other decisions were similarly gaudy, 13-0 over Val D’Or, 28-0 over Rouyn-Noranda and 12-0 over Victoriaville.
Efrain Romero’s team of 11 an 12-year-olds blasted eight homers over the tournament in Val D’Or.
Michael Cerulli pitched for the shutout, while Ryan Antel hit two dingers and five RBI. Ryan Arnsten also homered.
The team now advances to Canada’s national Little League tournament in Edmonton from August 4 to 11. The winner of that tournament then goes onto the Little League World Series in Williamsport Pennsylvania.
