EAST PROVIDENCE — The Rumford Little League squad in the District 2 Ron Silva Minor Baseball Division All-Star event reached the winners’ bracket final against Bristol where they won by a 6-3 count on Monday night, July 11.

Rumford advanced to the championship round in a week’s time where the locals will face either Bristol or Barrington for the tournament title.

Bristol travels to Barrington on July 18 vie in the losers’ bracket final.

The winner, which will need to beat Rumford twice for the title, advances to the championship beginning on Saturday, July 23, at a time and place to be determined. An “if” game would be played the following day on July 24.

Rumford opened the Silva event with a 12-8 defeat of Pawtucket-Darlington then got the better of Middletown 7-5.
