Opp’s 12U All-Stars secured a spot in the tournament’s championship game with a 3-0 win over Brewton on Friday night in Opp.
Brewton got a hit from Kyle Blevins with one-out in the top of the first, but the Opp squad kept Brewton off the scoreboard in the first.
Opp looked like it might get a one-out hit from Hal Smithart in the top of the second inning, but an amazing catch by Brewton center fielder Trent Cooper robbed Smithart of a hit. Cooper was running straight back towards the center field fence, when he held his glove up on the run slapping the ball. Cooper then somehow managed to corral the ball barehanded for the out.
In the bottom of the fourth, Jesse Coon stepped up to the plate and hammered the first pitch he saw deep over the fence in center field and over a utility truck fixing the scoreboard.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, Opp went up 3-0 on a passed ball and held Brewton scoreless the next inning to get the win.
