Championship run ends for Monaca Sportsman
Monaca's chance for a third straight BCYBL Little League championship fell short Wednesday night as South Beaver Elko scored six runs in the seventh inning to defeat Monaca 9-3. A fifth inning home run by Andy Broniszewski, his first career homer, put Monaca up 3-1 in the bottom of the fifth. But the hard-hitting South Beaver team tied the game in the sixth 3-3. They then held Monaca scoreless in the sixth after the first two batters reached base. South Beaver then put up six runs in the seventh to put the game away. Congratulations Sportsmans on a great season.
