Knik holds on to beat Ketchikan

Posted: Sunday, July 20, 2003

This time, Ketchikan came out on the short end of a close game.

After winning two nailbiters over Juneau to claim the District 2 crown, the Ketchikan All-Stars Junior Division (age 13-14) Little League baseball squad fell to the District 1 champion Knik All-Stars of Eagle River 3-2 on Saturday to open state tourney play at Adair-Kennedy Memorial Park.

Knik starting pitcher Zack Morse threw all seven innings for his team, and Knik catcher K.C. Morgan scored twice in a game that saw every run scored aided, at least in part, by fielding errors.

Ketchikan's Trevor Norton had a strong pitching outing in relief. Norton inherited a baserunner on third with no outs and the score 3-2 in the top of the fourth, but managed to strike out the side.

Norton retired the first eight batters he faced and did not allow a run, but Ketchikan's offense was unable to produce any runs late in the game.

Knik moves on to play District 3 champion North Pole at 3 p.m. today in the winners' bracket of the double-elimination tournament. Ketchikan will play the loser of that game at 6 p.m. Monday in the losers' bracket.
