Erin Dunn drove in three runs and winning pitcher Hope Jones drove in two Monday when Bob Horlacher completed an unbeaten run through the District 31 Little League Major Softball Tournament with a 7-2 win over visiting Back Mountain.
Bob Horlacher went 3-0 in the five-team, double-elimination event for 11-12-year-olds. Back Mountain, which came out of the elimination bracket, could have forced another game to decide the title if it had won Monday.
The title sends Bob Horlacher into the Section 5 Tournament that starts Tuesday.
Dunn had a two-run single in the five-run first inning. Kassidy Shirtz also singled in a run during the inning.
Jones, who also scored two runs, threw a four-hitter with seven strikeouts.
Samantha Kern had a double for the game’s only extra-base hit and scored both runs for Back Mountain.
Syndey Hornlein allowed just one hit and one earned run in 4 1/3 innings of relief for Back Mountain.
