The Lafayette Little League All-Stars began tournament play Saturday night June 30th in the Area Tournament.  It is being hosted by the Portland Little League. 
The 11 & 12 year old team played their first game against Portland.  The final score was 11 to 2 in favor of Lafayette.  Portland not only had to battle the high temperatures that Mother Nature provided, but also the heat that Logan Thompson and Aaron Colter were throwing at them.  Thompson struck out 10 of the 15 batters that he faced and Colter struck out 5 of the 6 batters that he faced.  The offense was led by Trent Boles, who scored 3 times, including one home run.  He was followed by Joshua Hauskin, Thompson, Quentin Owen with 2 runs scored each.  Bret Sloan and Trent Cook each scored one run.  They had a lot of runners on base and got some timely hitting. The 9 & 10 year old team also played Portland, with Lafayette winning 17 to 12.
The Lafayette All-Stars were back in action on Tuesday, July 3 facing the All-Stars from Hartsville.
In 11 & 12 Year Old action, southpaw Trent Cook was called on and he brought his “A” game.  Cook faced 17 batters and recorded 11 strikeouts.  He threw a no-hitter and missed a perfect game by issuing two walks, leading the team to an 11 to 1 win.  The only run came on an error by the defense.  The offense was lead by Logan Thompson and Aaron Colter, with each scoring three runs each.  They were followed by Kelton Ballou and Trent Boles with two runs scored, Boles also hit a home run, and Quentin Owen scored one run. The 9 & 10’s held on in the last inning to win 6 to 5 against Hartsville as well.
