Their teamwork paid off.

The Ozone Howard Little League’s age 10-11 division won the Queens District 27 tournament on June 30, besting the Rockaway Little League in a three-game series.

“This was an overall team effort and a great accomplishment for these kids,” Ozone Howard’s manager John Miden said.

“They played hard and should be proud.”

In the first game against Rockaway, Ozone Howard’s Thomas Menechella pitched four scoreless innings and gave up a total of just two hits in an 11-0 win. Ozone Howard won the following game in similar fashion. Pitcher John Corcoran allowed just two hits and Ozone Howard’s offense exploded for a 12-0 victory.

“This team has talent and they are playing up to their potential right now,” coach Andy Menechella said. “Great pitching, timely hitting and a great overall team effort. As coaches of this team, we are proud.”

Ozone Howard’s next opponent will be the winner of a three-team race between Long Island’s Oceanside American Little League, Lynbrook Little League and Rockville Center Little League.
