If Southborough was intimidated at the thought of facing the defending state and New England Little League champions in today’s state championship round-robin match up, it didn’t show. Our boys stunned Peabody Western with a 10-0 win, their second shutout of the tournament.
“Today happened to be our day, and we’re very happy to be where we are, to be 2-0,” said Southboro manager Ken Trehub, whose team rattled seven Peabody pitchers for 11 hits. “We took advantage of what was given to us. That probably helped us score some additional runs.”
Southboro left-hander Jack Harlan made quick work of Peabody early on, cruising through 2-2/3 innings before allowing a hit, a single to Steve Guttadauro that put runners on first and second.
