Scarborough Little League’s 11-12 squad is currently battling through the New England Tournament in Bristol, Conn., hoping to become the first Maine team to rep for the region in the World Series in more than a decade. The team picked up an 8-4 win over Vermont on Sunday, Aug. 7, but fell 5-2 to Rhode Island Monday the 8th.

Nic Frink went 2-3 with a homerun in the Vermont game, while Peter O’Brien went 2-4 with a triple, and Sam Clark went 2-4 with a double. Clark, Ryan Gambardella, Ben Seguin and Joseph Townsend combined for 13 Ks from the mound.

Frink, Clark, O’Brien and TJ Liponis picked up hits in the Rhode Island game, and Jack Simonton blasted a homer.

“Kelly and Gambardella pitched a five-hitter,” said manager Corey Frink. “We were only down 3-2 until late in the game when a bunt that went foul was overturned by instant replay and advanced runners for Rhode Island, eventually scoring them. We out-hit Rhode Island, but took the loss.”

Scarborough faced off with Connecticut at 7 p.m. on Tuesday the 9th, after Current Publishing’s print deadline.

Meanwhile, the Scarborough 9-10 outfit is also participating in their Regional tourney, this one in Cranston, R.I.
