Top-ranked Mount View, which sported an unbeaten record when it headed into the Waldo County Little League baseball championship game on Monday night, June 17 against No. 3 Searsport/Stockton, had been the cream of the crop all season.

Monday’s title clash at Walsh Field further cemented that fact as Mount View collected nine hits and held the opposition to a single hit — with that, well, being a single — and galloped to an 8-0 shutout victory to claim the coveted championship.

Mount View continued its offensive onslaught in the fourth when Fountain singled to lead the inning ahead of Bryant, who connected on a two-run, inside-the-park home run to give it a five-run advantage.

In the fifth, Mount View put the game out of reach.

Stuart Knowlton began the frame with a single, stole second base, moved to third on an error and later scored on a passed ball, while Harriman reached base moments later via a base on balls.

Raven then doubled off the second base bag — as the ball trickled deep into the outfield — which allowed Harriman to come all the way around to score. Bryant later plated Raven with a single to round out the scoring.
