Both Southampton All-Star teams will be seeking their first victories in the District 36 Tournament this week after suffering losses in their first games over the weekend and on Monday.The 12-and-under All-Stars made a valiant comeback in their opening game on Saturday at Hampton West Park in Westhampton, but eventually lost, 8-7, to East End Little League. They then suffered a 10-1 loss to North Shore American at Downs Family Recreational Park on Monday evening.

Both Southampton and Hampton Bays started off pool play 0-2 while East Hampton and Sag Harbor are both tied for first, being undefeated in their first two games. North Shore American and East End are both 1-1.

After each team plays each other once, which will wrap up this Sunday, the top two teams from each pool move on to the semifinals of the tournament. Pool ‘B’ this year is made up of North Shore National, Eastport-South Manor, Moriches Bay, North Patchogue/Medford, Riverhead and Mastic.

Southampton fell behind by six runs after four innings of play at East End on Saturday but mounted its comeback—with two outs—in the top of the sixth inning. A two-run single by Daniel Palumbo brought Southampton within a run of East End’s lead at 6-5, and after a single by Travis Kreymborg, Dan McDonnell roped a two-run single of his own to give Southampton its first lead of the game at 7-6.

East End, to its credit, didn’t hang its head. After two quick outs to start the inning by Kreymborg, East End managed to get a pair of runners on for Sean Cullen, who stroked a double to right center field, allowing Fin Drake to score the game-winning run, giving East End the walk-off victory.

The Southampton 12U squad is managed by Daniel McDonnell and coached by Glenn Halsey and Matt Palumbo. Elijah Abella, Bailey Brown, Sam Conklin, Christian Duggal, Burke Dunne, Hewie Dunne, Cole Fox, Cam Gratton, Ben Halsey, Travis Kreymborg, Dan McDonnell, Daniel Palumbo and Jackson Romanov all make up this year’s team.

Southampton was scheduled to host Sag Harbor on Wednesday and Hampton Bays on Friday at 5:45 p.m. before finishing up round-robin play on Sunday at East Hampton at noon.

10U All-Stars

The Southampton 10-and-under All-Stars lost their first game, 12-0, to East Hampton at Downs Family Recreational Park on Sunday afternoon but manager Kirk Warner is confident his team will bounce right back this week. Southampton was scheduled to play North Shore American on Tuesday, weather permitting, and then Thursday, June 27, back at Downs Park against Sag Harbor at 5:45 p.m.

Four teams make up Pool ‘A’ in the 10U group this season. North Shore American and East Hampton won their first games while Sag Harbor and Southampton are 0-1. Longwood, North Shore National, North Patchogue/Medford and Riverhead play in Pool ‘B,’ and just like their older counterparts, the top two teams from each pool move on to the semifinals of the tournament.

Much of the team, Coach Warner said, is made up the Southampton V.F.W. team that went 12-2 overall this past spring and won the Minors Division title over Sag Harbor. This year’s squad is made up of Jack D’Italia, Colin DeLalio, Ignatius Fulweiler, Carlie Kreymborg, Thomas Lavinio, Demetrios Lazarakis, James Navan, Auggie Schuster, Cole Senior, Sam Telvi, Kyle Warner and Taylor White. Kirk Warner is joined by Jamie Navan and Charlie Schuster on the coaching staff.
