The 11- and 12-year-old Brookings-Harbor All-Stars softball team lost another one-run game to Rogue River that ousted them from the district tournament.

Tuesday evening, the girls battled back from a 10-1 defecit in the final two innings to make a run at Rogue River, but ended up falling just short by a final score of 10-9.

"It was a pretty exciting game," Manager Stephanie Glazebrook said. "The girls finally came alive and looked like they wanted to play ball."

A triple by Mariah Baron, double by Josey Glazebrook and an inside-the-park home run by Katie Cone helped the girls rally for eight runs in the final two innings.

Brookings lost their first game in pool play to Rogue River in a 7-6 heartbreaker that lasted nine innings.

After losing to a powerhouse Medford team, the All-Stars again found themselves matched up against Rogue River which also resulted in a one-run loss, 3-2.

"Losing the first nine inning game kinda took the air out of the girls and we had a hard time getting it back," Glazebrook said. "But they're a great group of girls and their heart was there and for the most part they kept their chins up."
