Ozone Howard Little League 8U defeated Oceanside National Little League to win the tournament.

The Ozone Howard Little League eight and under team defeated Oceanside National Little League, 7-5, in a tournament hosted by Oceanside on July 25, after an explosive comeback effort.

Trailing Oceanside in the 4th inning, Ozone Howard’s Chris Kollmer cleared the bases with a two-out double to take the lead. Following the comeback, John Sapia entered in relief for Ozone Howard and shutout Oceanside for the final three innings for the win.

The victory capped a six-game undefeated streak in the tournament.
