In a tight extra inning contest the Lockport Midget ‘A’ League All-Stars dropped a narrow 5-4 decision to the Lockport CEBA team Wednesday night at Gasport.

The CEBA squad pushed across a run in the eighth inning on a pair of walks and a double to claim the All-Star game win.

The Midget ‘A’ All-Stars had tied the game at 4-4 with a run in the seventh as Jacob Hoffee (Somerset) was hit by a pitch and came around to score on a couple of passed balls.

Earlier, the All-Stars built up a 3-2 lead after scoring solo runs in three of the first four innings.

The All-Stars scored in the first on an RBI single by Brian Chatt (Tri-City), in the second as Eddie Wasnock (Somerset) singled and came home on an error and in the fourth as Preston Harris (Somerset) walked, stole second and scored on an error.

On the evening the All-Stars also got hits from Donnie Voss (Roy-Hart) and Zach Tojek (Orchard Park).

Wasnock, Bryce Pritchard (Albion), Tojek, Thomas Furmanski (Albion), Chatt and Hoffee shared the pitching duties for the All-Stars.

Albion was also represented by JaQuess Harrison and Roy-Hart by Bryce Seddon and Karl Darling.
