The Middlesex Little League Minor League All-Stars (ages 9-10) played Mathews on June 23 in the double-elimination District 15 Tournament, but the game was extended to June 24 because of bad weather.
The teams got three innings in on June 23 before the rain delay with Mathews ahead 12-6. Mathews went on to win 18-13 on June 24 and eliminated Middlesex.
Westmoreland gave Middlesex its first loss of the tournament, 14-4 on June 22.
The tournament, which was held at the Middlesex Sports Complex at Locust Hill, ended on June 28 with Essex blanking King William 10-0 in the championship game.
