Chewelah 12U wins Deer Park Tournament second year in a row, Chewelah 10U also brings home the gold…
Kai Masuda and Dekota Acosta both went 3-for- 3 on Sunday evening as they led the Chewelah Cougars to the 10U division championship of the Deer Park Tournament.
Masuda drilled a pair of doubles, batted in two runs and scored two runs. Acosta smashed three singles, scored three runs, and batted in a run.
The Cougars scored 16 runs in just three at-bats in sidelining Sandpoint 16-5 in the championship encounter of the tournament.
Chewelah leaped out in front with an eight-run first inning with a six-hit barrage that included doubles by Masuda, Nolan Jeanneret and Bode Katzer. Also swatting hits were Miles Krausz, Dakota Katzer, and Acosta.
The Cougars went on to score five runs in the second inning and three more in the third. The game ended on the 10-run rule when Sandpoint did not score in the top of the fourth inning.
Chewelah won four of its five games in the tournament, including a 10-8 upset victory over Trail in their first outing on the field. More
