Junior Leaguers are eliminated as Wylie rallies for 4-2 victory

July 3, 2014

The Junior League all-stars from Sweetwater must have felt like it was deja vu all over again at the end of their District 5 losers bracket game against Wylie on Wednesday.
For the second straight game, and second time in three days, Sweetwater was three outs away from a win that would have put them in the District 5 title game.
But those dreams were dashed for a second straight time Wednesday as Wylie, trailing 2-1 entering the top of the seventh, pushed over three runs in its final at bat and held off Sweetwater in the bottom of the frame to leave with a 4-2 victory.
