IMPERIAL — Before the major league Little League District 22 team tournament began, members of the Imperial Braves called their shot.
They said they would win it all. One player even said the Braves would go undefeated.
Well, Imperial is one win from backing up its bold words as it faces the Calexico Yankees at 7:30 tonight in the championship game of the tournament in Imperial.
Tonight's game will be the second match-up between the teams after Imperial downed Calexico 11-8 Friday.
"Calexico's a good team, but if we play our game, we'll be in good shape," said Imperial manager Alfred Moore. "We know we're in the driver's seat and we just have to take advantage of it."
Moore's squad only needs one win to earn the championship, but should Calexico get a victory tonight the squads will hook up again Thursday to decide the champion.
