YOUNGSVILLE - The QSA Americans 7-and-8 year old All-Stars made it look easy on the first day of the Super Regional Pinto Tournament on Sunday.
QSA scored a combined 32 runs in two victories.
They beat the QSA Nationals 18-8 in the first game of the game, and then two hours later, knocked off Rayne 14-7.
The Americans played Loreauville Monday night. The game was still in progress when the Meridional went to press.
Loreauville finished first in the qualifying tournament last week in Erath. This will be the first time the two teams meet.
In the second game, after about a 30-minute lightning delay, QSA came out on fire and scored five runs.
The lead was extended 7-2 on a 2-RBI in-the-park home run by Braxton Richard.
Rayne rallied and tied 7-7 but could not hold the lead for long.
The tie was broken when Aidan Bertrand and Landyn Romero each had hits to knock in runs for QSA in the bottom of the third frame.
By the time the third inning was over, QSA led 12-7.
The National QSA team lost to the Americans 18-8 in the first game, but they stayed alive in the second game by winning. They played Kaplan Monday night in the loser’s bracket.
