Our 9U Titans won 2nd Place to Blackhawk in our home hosted tourney this past week. We had to battle from the #7 seed due to a tough 5-5 tie vs Hampton (we were up 5-0) and a tough comeback 8-7 loss to Ingomar (we were up 7-0) in pool play. We got our revenge against #2 Hampton in the Quarterfinal 7-6 and then had a super solid W (2nd of the summer) against a VERY good #3 Seneca Valley team 3-1 in our Semi to reach the Championship. Blackhawk is thought by most to be more of an “A-caliber” team that was on a trophy hunt. We played them tighter than anyone thought and lost “only” 7-0 in the Final, whereas they steamrolled and 10-runned every other team 12-2 in 4/5 innings. After a hot week of Shaler hitting, our bats went quiet in the Championship game and we had 3 unusual errors in the game which gave up most of their 7 runs….which means….we can 100% beat that team!! 🙂
All in all – a great week of SALL baseball. SO proud of our 9U/10U families!!!!!!!!! On to Ingomar for last of the summer this coming week. We are poised for high expectations of following up our #2 with a big #1!!! We play 7:45p Thu and Fri at Vestal Park in Wexford (Field #3).
Congratulations boys and Good Luck at Ingomar!!
