CUBS DOMINATE SATURDAY ACTION

March 25, 2017

The game of baseball is a humbling game because it doesn’t matter how you play from weekend to weekend or from game to game. After finishing in second place last week in their tournament debut, the 10 and under age Team Havoc traveled to Waycross today to compete in their second weekend of action. Havoc started the morning round of pool play losing to 5 Star Tifton by a score of 14-1 and then tied the Ditch Chickens at eight runs each. The single elimination round was no kinder to the #7 seed Havoc as they lost to the #8 Rippers by a score of 10-4 and making an early exit from the weekends action.

Up in Vidalia however, the 8-U Tri-County Cubs had a great day defeating 5 Star 21-13 followed by a victory over the Vipers by a score of 22-0 giving the Cubs the number 1 overall seed. In the single elimination round, the Vipers did better but it still wasn’t good enough as their day ended by a score of 14-8 sending Tri-County to the championship. The championship ended up as the toughest game of the day as the Cubs had a slugfest with Crossfire but at the end of seven innings, Tri-County was the victor and the Champions by a score of 19-18.

As Always, Go Bears!
