GARNER — Both of Rockingham’s Pinto League all-star teams dropped their games Saturday at the Pony League Piedmont Section tournament in Garner.

Rockingham Blue had won both of its contests Friday night, but dropped a 12-7 decision to Garner. The loss dropped Rockingham Blue into the loser’s bracket. It will return to action 1 p.m. Sunday against West Raleigh.

The winner of that contest will face Garner for the Piedmont Section championship at 3 p.m. Sunday. If Rockingham Blue or West Raleigh knock off Garner, which is still undefeated in the tournament, it would force a decisive winner take all game. That contest would be played at 5 p.m.

Rockingham Orange was eliminated earlier Saturday when it was edged by High Point 8-6.
