July 21, 2010 - Boys from the Clarkston Riverdawgs 10U team showed their competition it's hard to keep a good Dawg down.

They were down 4-0 when they went against the Michigan Red Sox. Knowing they could do better, they fought back during the "Best of the Best" Grand Blanc Baseball Tournament.

They finished the game with a 13-7 win and won the tournament.

They also won five back-to-back games against teams from all over the state, July 10-11 at Bicentenial Park in Grand Blanc.

The team ended the season with 17 wins, two tournament championships. They won 10 of their last 12 games.

"The boys should be very proud of themselves," said Scott Cooper, assistant coach.

The Riverdawgs 10U team is Owen Alexander, Ryan Cooper, Joe Dipillo, Zach Erwin, Jake Galiatso, Sam Gayford, Joe Halligan, Trevor Gilman, Jason Richards, Kyle Sabin, Jake Spicer and Nathan Uballe.

Their coaches are Rich Hynes, as head coach, Scott Cooper, Paul Dipillo and Matt Halligan, as assistant coaches.
