|VIDEO: Robbinsville rolls by Hanover in 9/10 state softball final|
Robbinsville is quickly becoming the softball capital of New Jersey.
The small town in Mercer County won another softball championship when it defeated Hanover in the state final for 9- and 10-year olds. Robbinsville dominated the game, winning 13-0 in four innings Sunday. The win brought the 10′s their age group's New Jersey Little League state championship. They thus add yet another banner to the fabric-filled wall at Tantum Park's fieldhouse.
Extra base hits by both Brynn Hopkins and Becca Siracusa accounted for several runs. Hopkins also pitched to near perfection, as Hanover never got a runner past second base.
In three games at the state tournament, Robbinsville never allowed a run and won each time by double digits.
Hanover battled through the loser's bracket to reach the state final. After falling to Waterford in its first game of the tournament, the Morris County team battled back, first defeating Wallington 5-1, then gaining revenge on Waterford with a 7-5 triumph.
Robbinsville's state champion Little League softball team (11-12 year olds) was on hand to watch the final game. That squad recently won the East Regional title, advancing to the Little League World Series for the fourth time in seven years, the first time any town has accomplished that feat.
