At Hiller Park in McKinleyville, the Redwood Empire Little League 11-year-old all-stars opened their tournament on a winning note, getting the better of Eel River by a score of 7-3.

The three-team tournament continues on Sunday morning, when McKinleyville takes on Redwood Empire at 9:30 a.m.

The winner of that game will continue in the winner’s bracket on Tuesday, while the loser will face an elimination game on Monday night against Eel River at 6 p.m.

The double-elimination tournament runs through Tuesday at least.
