Little League 10-11: Saco wins states
BUCKSPORT — The Saco 10-11 year old Little League All-Star team topped Scarborough in a thrilling game to win the state championship in Bucksport on Thursday.

After losing a two-run lead in the first inning and falling behind 3-2, the Trojans would beat the odds in the final inning, scoring four runs and taking the 6-3 lead to eventually secure the win.

“The kids never gave up — once (Scarborough) tied things up with the homerun, that could be troublesome, but the kids stuck with it,” said Saco manager Kirk Purvis. “I was in the dugout with the team the entire game and when you put runs on the board early everyone gets on a high, but then to get shut down for four innings, the kids can get kind of down. We talked to them before the last inning, we encouraged them and told them they could come back and they went out and performed.”
