AMHERST – Heavy rain early Sunday didn't deter teams competing at the 49th Annual David Maltby Memorial Little League tournament.
Rain forced a three-hour delay in the morning's action, but games resumed after noon with Lower Sackville and the New Glasgow DQ Biizzards advancing to Monday's championship game.
Lower Sackville defeated the Cornwall Cougars from P.E.I. in one semifinal Sunday night, while New Glasgow edged Humber Park in the other semi.
Humber Park plays Cornwall in the consolation final at 10 a.m. Monday while Lower Sackville faces New Glasgow in the final at 11 a.m.
The Amherst Canadian Tire Little League All-Stars went 1-2 in the tournament, dropping a 4-2 decision to Humber Park in their final game on Sunday. They opened with a big win over Sydney before losing a close 3-1 decision to New Glasgow later Saturday.
