The Lancaster County Little League Junior Baseball All Stars went 1-2 last week and was eliminated by Mathews in the District 15 tournament at Dream Fields in Kilmarnock.
Lancaster won its opening game, 11-10, over Mathews on June 25 after a walk-off double by Luke Simpson in the bottom of the seventh lifted the host all stars by a run.
