The 12U Silver Outlaws coached by Randy Powierza entered Sunday in the Silver Bracket at the Lancer Classic in Lewiston NY after a tough bracket in pool play. The boys went 3-0 on Sunday and outscored their opponents 38-16 to win the Silver Bracket Championship.

In the Championship the Outlaws fell behind 3-0 to the Niagara Jr. Purple Eagles after two innings. The boys rallied back to score 8 runs in the 3rd inning led by Charlie Swanson's grand slam and Ryan White's two run home run. The Outlaws won 16-10 behind great pitching from Jake Schmidt and Connor Powierza and great hitting as all 11 players reached base. In the tournament Cooper Cousins had 3 home runs, Ray Wasiella had two, Charlie Swanson and Ryan White 1. The boys did the 3 things their coaches have been asking them to do all year: do their best, give 100% on every play and be coachable. Because they did that they had a lot of fun.
