When the third strike was whiffed past Scott Penry of the Moose Jaw Americans the Dave Elton Park area became one big hassle. Ball players, coaches, par- ents and fans ran around hug- ging and congratulating each other on the happy occasion. This was the scene after the final game of the District 2 Little League Zone playoffs won by Lethbridge Norcrest 3-2. Some 800 fans took part in giving the locals some vocal mpport and it helped the boys tremendously. After Moose Jaw had tied the score 2-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning, winning pitcher Brian Robinson rapped out a single for Lethbridge and then proceeded to steal second and thud and with the count two and two on Richard SSiardlow, Moose Jaw pitcher Brad De- vine was wide with his pitch and the quick reacting Robin- son came home with what proved to be the winning run. The victory gives the locals a berth in the Canadian final in Thunder Bay, Ont. set to get under way Tuesday. Should the Norcrest club be fortunate enough to win they would rep- resent Canada a't the Little League World Series in Wil- liamsport, Penn., the home of Little League. Not since 1953, when Pop Walker took his American said, "the team did the talking for me." On the other hand jubilant coach John Koskoski stated, "like 1 said before, we'll play one game at a time." The locals dropped their opener to the Edmonton Cen trals 5-2 and came right back picking up four straight vic- tories to gain the coveted Little League championship banner. In the long struggle to the finals the locals eliminated the Calgary Centennials 10-5, oust- ed the Edmonton Centrals 12-1 and defeated Ihe Moose Jaw Americans 18-3 and 3-2. The All-Stars were not to be denied the award as they played their hearts out in last night's contest. Greg Kveder started the locals towards the pennant in the first inning as he lined a hard smash through second for a double. David Koskoski fol- lowed, poking o'lt a single scor- ing Kveder. In the second inning the locals went ahead 2-0 when Eddie Leong rapped a single, Gordon Kieth walked and Gor- don Tokariufc blooped a single scoring Leong from second. Both clubs blanked each oilier until the bottom of the sixth inning, the last regular game inning. Doug Smale got things rolling for the Moose Jaw team as he reached first base on an error.
