Northern wins Tournament of State Champions

Northern 13, Greenville North State (NC) 10

Dylan Presley homered twice to lead the Northern All-Stars to a 13-10 victory over Greenville North State Little League in the finals of the 9-11 Tournament of State Champions on Wednesday afternoon in Greenville, North Carolina.

Presley's second homer led off the top of the sixth and keyed a ten-run outburst to lead Northern to the come-from-behind win.

Northern would need all ten runs. In the bottom of the sixth, North State scored five runs and loaded the bases with two outs to bring the potential winning run to the plate. But Presley in relief came up with the big pitch, snagging a comeback grounder to end the game.

Northern brings home the championship banner for the second straight year, following up the 2015 11-year old all-stars' victory in the TOSC.
