Most of Womack Printing’s wins in the boys junior league this season came with Taylor Smith on the mound, so there was little doubt who would have the ball in his hands when the team battled Homeland Bank for the tournament championship Monday night.Smith had 11 strikeouts and finished with two hits as well to power Womack Printing to 4-1 victory while claiming the tournament championship.Homeland Bank, which earned its way into the title tilt with a 1-0 win over Prater’s BBQ in the first game Monday at Sam Martin Field, scored its lone run in the first inning before Smith put the clamps on the visitor’s offense.Connor Nunley led off the game with a hit off Smith and would ultimately score on Quin Goodson’s RBI single smacked through the middle of the infield. Smith ended the inning with a strikeout and wouldn’t allow another hit until the sixth inning.Womack Printing would come back to knot the score in the bottom of the second inning. After Smith struck out the side in the top half of the inning, Matthew Young sparked the offense with a lead-off single.
