The lone offensive standout for the Warriors was Benny Buckley, who singled and stole two bases.

With two quick outs on pop-ups fielded by Warriors second basemen Cameron Griffin and third baseman Chase Landau, and while protecting a hard-earned 6-3 lead, Warriors 8U pitcher Matthew Hoegee zeroed in on Wyatt Kline behind the plate, hoping to get the last out of the game and earn the 8-U Warriors’ first-ever victory at Mid-Valley against the dominant East Valley Eagles. As Hoegee reared back to throw, a five-plane squadron of vintage World War II combat planes buzzed Field 6A, but the Warriors were so focused that they barely noticed. The Eagle’s three-hole hitter smoked a line drive to right field, where Edward Maxam picked it up on one hop and threw it to Jackson Eisenhauer at first base to end the game. Nate Severy had the hit of the game, launching a double to deep right field and plating the Warriors’ first run. Kline led the team with two hits, an RBI and a pitch that hit the batter, which he turned into a run as well. Hoagie hit a bomb to center field that the Eagles’ prevented from being a home run with a fielder slamming into the fence.

Torres set the tone, striking out the side in the first inning and adding another strike out in the second.
