Wesson’s Tyler McLeod delivers a strike to the plate in the second inning against Magee on Tuesday evening.

Justin Boone sends a pitch over the wall for a 3 run homer in game action on Tuesday.

Jonah Henderson snags a fly ball in left field for an out.

UPDATE:

NATCHEZ 8 WESSON 7

Wesson fell to Natchez on Wednesday evening 8-7.  Justin Boone’s solo homer in the bottom of the sixth closed the gap from 8-6, but Natchez put the clamps on and recorded the final out of the game on the next batter.

As to what happens next in the tournament is unclear.  According to at least two fans who have been attending the tournament each night, Wesson may play tonight, but may not.  Details will be available later today. . .

WESSON 9 MAGEE 6

The Wesson 12 year-old all stars keep scratching and clawing and winning games in the South State tournament in Magee.

On Tuesday evening, the team suffered an early deficit and then put together a string of good defense and offense to defeat Magee 9-6.

Justin Boone’s 3 run homer put Wesson in the lead.  Good plays in the field by McLeod, leftfielder Jonah Henderson and others helped the team post the victory.

Now 3-1 in the tournament, Wesson takes the field tonight at 8 p.m. against the winner of Natchez and Lawrence County.  A win secures the South State championship and advances Wesson to the state tournament in Hattiesburg next week.  A loss sends Wesson into a consolation game on Thursday to battle for the third slot in the state tournament.
