GREAT BEND — Little River outhit Pittsburg Colgan Friday night in the Class 2-1A state baseball championship game, but couldn’t outscore the Panthers.

Little River scattered about six hits, but could never dent the board against the Panthers in a 4-0 loss.

Cordell Moore had two hits for Little River and Laramie Peters roped a double. The Redskins struck out only three times and drew three walks, so they had plenty of runners.

Little River pitcher Grant Harvey pitched well enough to win as he allowed only three hits in 6 2/3 innings. It was a 1-0 game until sixth when the Panthers pushed across two runs, then added another in the seventh.

It was the highest finish ever for the Redskins. They were 20-6 on the year.
