The South Boston all-stars have been ousted from the state AAA minors tournament at the Day Complex.

South Boston suffered two consecutive lopsided losses, after posting a win in its opener.

Rustburg eliminated the South Boston, 16-1, on Monday.

South Boston got its only run in this game in the first inning. Colin Saunders and Jackson Newton singled, and Saunders scored.

Jayveon Wilborn later singled, but was stranded.

Rustburg cranked up the offense early. Rustburg had six runs in the first inning, two in the second and eight more in the third.

The local all-stars fell on Sunday, 10-0 score to Brunswick.

Brunswick scored three runs in the first inning, three in the third and four in the fourth.

South Boston could not produce any offense. The locals got two singles from Saunders. Wilborn and Cameron Nelson had walks, but otherwise, the local all-stars could not click on offense.
