Although Benton Academy entered the contest the hottest team with three straight tournament wins, the Mavericks cooled them off with a 4-1 victory.
Manchester beat Leake 3-2 to advance to face Benton.
The Mavericks struck first scoring a run in the first. Later in the fifth inning the Mavericks plated three runs to go up 4-0 for the game.
Benton’s lone run came in the sixth to make it 4-1.
Although the Raiders lost, skipper Keith Fagan was impressed with his team throughout the tournament.
