BRISTOL, Conn.  –  Lightning struck twice for the Cumberland American All-Stars on Monday night.

After pasting Massachusetts champion Barnstable, 25-5, in its opener on Saturday, the bat-savvy Rhode Islanders strolled to a 10-0 “mercy-rule” victory over Goffstown, N.H. in another pool-play contest of what is becoming a terrific Little League New England Regional Tournament at Breen Field.

Not surprisingly, Addison Kopack, who saw action at third base, left field and on the hill, led this surge as well. After going 2-for-4 with a whopping seven RBI and two runs scored in the opener, he went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a homer while closing his evening with two RBI and three runs scored.

But his offense wasn’t all he provided his teammates. He earned a bags-filled predicament in the top half of the fourth, but struck out the side. Nick Croteau nevertheless earned the win, and CALL improved to a perfect 9-0 since the district event.
