The Bryant All-Stars will tangle with the White Hall All-Stars for the championship of the Little League 12-and-under State championship tonight at Bishop Park.
Bryant is the last unbeaten team in the tournament. A win in the first game will earn the championship. If White Hall is able to prevail, it will set up a winner-take-all finale 30 minutes after the first contest. So Bryant will have two chances to win one game and the title.
The winning advances to Regionals in Waco, Texas set for Aug. 3-10. The winner of the Regional Tournament qualifies for the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., Aug. 18-28.
The Bryant team, coached by Jason Greiner, includes Braedon Boyce, Gage Buford, Gavin Burton, Caleb Greiner, Drew Hatman, Connor Martin, Colby Morrow, Calvin Myles, Kyler Pabon, J.T. Parker, Cade Parker, Turner Seelinger and Hayden Thompson.
Bryant defeated White Hall 5-1 on Sunday in the winners’ bracket final, claiming the berth in the final round. White Hall overcame Bismarck’s All-Stars in the losers bracket final on Monday to gain the other berth in the final.
