The only remaining undefeated teams are scheduled to meet at City Park on Monday night as Laurens (L3) takes on Northwood of Taylors in the state Little League Majors tournament at 6.
Laurens scored 4 runs in the tournament’s first inning on Friday and blanked Barrier Islands 9-0 on a combine no-hitter tossed by Ke’Allen Blackwell, Karson Vinson and Isaac Cain.
Jaylin Bluford went 3-for-4 with a double, 2 runs and 2 RBI.
L3 remained unbeaten – and unscored upon – with a 3-0 victory on Saturday over Irmo.
All 3 tallies crossed the plate in the second inning on a pair of bases-loaded walks issued to Griffin Raines and Bluford. L3 collected only 3 hits, 1 each by Wyatt Pinson, Cain and Cody Haymes.
