The Glasgow 10-Under Little League All-Stars rallied from a seven-run deficit this past weekend to beat Marion County 10-9 in the second round of the Little League District Tournament in Cecilia.
“I just kept telling the kids it is a long game. We play six innings,” said Glasgow coach Jeff Jessie. “I told them we have to keep fighting, and they did.
“I told the kids after the game that most teams would have folded(after being down 7-0). But I told them they fought like men all day. Once they got the lead back, they never let up.”
The victory over Marion County keeps the Scotties undefeated in the tournament and puts them in the finals of the winners’ bracket. Glasgow will play Russell County on Tuesday at 5 p.m. The Scotties opened the tournament with an 11-1 victory over Adair County.
