BUDD LAKE, NJ - The Ridge 12U baseball team completed the pool play portion of its schedule in the Mid-Atlantic Tournament this week, and the Red Devils have qualified for the tournament round.

Laurel of South Jersey in an elimination game at 9 a.m. Saturday. If Ridge wins, the Red Devils will play top-seeded Prince George's County of Maryland at noon.
Ridge lost, 4-0, to Cedar Cliff of Pennsylvania on Wednesday. Ridge defeated Bear (Del.), 9-3, on Thursday morning, then lost to Kingston, N .Y., 9-4, in the afternoon. On Friday, Ridge lost, 8-1, to Prince George's County. But the Red Devils allowed five fewer cumulative runs than another team that also went 1-3, and were awarded the third spot from their pool.
