Stentiford Walkoff Lifts Lions in Adams-Cheshire Title Series

By Stephen Sports
ADAMS, Mass. – Cooper Stentiford homered to right field to drive in two runs in the bottom of the seventh and give Lions Club an 9-8 win over Bedard Brothers in the first game of the Adams-Cheshire Little League championship series on Friday at Beaver Bard Field.
Stentiford, who went 3-for-4, chased home Camden Durant, who hit a leadoff double for Lions, which has made a habit of dramatic comebacks.
“This was our second game in a row we were down big that we came back,” Lions coach Matt Kirchner said. “Last week, we were down nine going into the bottom of the sixth. That was to clinch a series.
“This one, same thing. And we’re short staffed with 10 kids. They stay with it. As long as the stay up, we stay up.”
This win was arguably as dramatic.
The Lions were down, 6-0, midway through the third inning and still trailed, 7-5, going to the bottom of the sixth.
But they scored two two force extra innings and two more to erase a one-run lead and walk off with game one of the series.
