The 11-and-12-year-old boys from College Station definitely made a statement at their sectionals tourney last week. They may have lost their tournament opener, but not only did they avenge that loss, they beat Austin Northwest twice to receive a bid to state.

Northwest was not prepared for the CS offense in game one, as they were shut out 11-0. The second game was much more competitive, but College Station reigned supreme to stun Northwest and send them packing.

College Station is representing District 33 in the Texas East State Tournament, which began Saturday, July 20th. They faced North Shore at 6 p.m. at Randy Womble Field in Tyler, TX Saturday night to kick-off the Texas East State tournament.

The Major Boys team took the lead in the first after some hot offense jump-started the game. North Shore attempted to catch College Station as they responded with three runs of their own in the bottom of the first. College Station had a three run lead for a portion of the game, but opened the flood gates in the sixth by capitalizing on North Shore's defensive errors. CS went on to win 11-4 Saturday night to face Pearland Maroon on Sunday night.

Pearland Maroon had all their ducks in a row as they humbled the College Station momentum Sunday night. Pearland ended the College Station win-streak at 6 games with a 13-1 loss, and forced the Major boys of District 33 into the loser's bracket.

The College Station Major boys will play Sweeny Monday night at 7 p.m. to face Pearland Maroon for the championship Tuesday.
