Athens, Decatur American eliminated
From Staff Reports
ATHENS — The last two teams with local ties fell from the bracket of the Dixie Boys Baseball North Division 13-year-olds state tournament Monday at the Athens Sportsplex.
Hueytown helped do the honors in both instances.
In a Monday morning game, Hueytown beat Athens 10-3, while Underwood eliminated Taylorville 5-4.
In the evening, Hueytown beat Decatur American 10-4, while Underwood defeated Athens 5-4.
Those losses put both Decatur American and Athens out of the field.
The championship game is set for Tuesday at 9 a.m. Hueytown has not lost a game in the double-elimination tournament, while Underwood has one loss.
If Hueytown wins, the tournament is over, but if Underwood wins, the two teams will play again in a winner-take-all game.
