WOODINVILLE--A second loss in as many games spelled the end of the line for West Seattle at the Majors age 11-12 baseball all-stars state tournament Sunday.

The Westsiders took a 10-3 loss to Stilly Valley at the Northshore Athletic Fields in Woodinville on the heels of a 6-1 loss to host Northwest on Saturday.
