June 27, 2011

In 2009, Lincoln captured the District IV and State All-Star Tournaments and then came one win away from Williamsport, Pa. for the Little League World Series after an 11-7 loss to Peabody (Mass.) Western in the New England Region finals.
Last year it was a talented bunch of players from Cumberland National that made the headlines with a nearly identical route of its neighbor. CNLL dominated its foes during the districts, did the same in the state tourney and then fell a run short, a 1-0 setback to Fairfield (Conn.) American in the title game, for a trip to the World Series.
