Daniel Boone takes the Little League World Series berth

A 3-0 deficit after the first half wasn’t enough to keep Daniel Boone’s junior softball team from their second straight trip to the Little League World Series.

Indiana State’s FA minor league champions Floyd County’s Floyd Boone beat Indiana State’s Daniel Boone with three defensive gems to preserve their 4-3 win and the 2022 Central District Championship.

Maely Martin scored the game-winning run with Keelee Hagler’s song at the bottom of fifth to lift Daniel Boone.

The win broke Daniel Boone’s 4-0 championship record, as the Missouri state champion won four games in five days, defeating Michigan, Iowa and Ohio to reach the regional title game against Indiana.

With Friday’s championship approaching, Daniel Boone had only allowed two runs in his first three matches together. Those runs came in a 5-2 win over Ohio on Thursday.
