Here's an excerpt:

After an 18-4 beating at the hands of last year’s 8-year-old Mid-Atlantic Champions, East Brunswick, and Spring answered the bell against their local rivals.

“I told them today that this was their most important game,” Spring manager Dave Judge said. “We gave up so many runs last night that we’re in trouble if we tie another team. We need to win the next two games.”

With a 2-1 pool play record, Spring controls its own destiny, facing Northwest Pennsylvania champion, Audubon 12:30 today.

“I was a little concerned after the second inning, but I knew they had it in them,” Judge said. “They stepped up from the third inning on.”
