    16U Farber Lightning Repeats as Champion

         After having to play 5 games on Sunday, 4 back-back, the girls pulled off an amazing run to win The Battle of the Burgh Tournament for a second year in a row.  Beating out 40 other teams that tried to take the title away.

         After tough games against the Niagara Wheatfield Nitro (8-0), Ohio Warriors (5-3), Pittsburgh Spirit Gold (7-1), Pittsburgh Predators (5-3) the girls were flying on adrenaline going into the final game.  With a 9:20pm start the girls came out hard and won the championship with a Mercy of Lou Gehrig Lasers-Quagliana 11-3.  Great job girls, coaches and parents.

    16U Lightning Vickers team fought hard playing 6 games in 24 hours as they take home second place in the 16 team tournament.

    Pool Play Wins- USSSA Pride 7-2, Southern Tier Elite 3-2, Under Armour Avalanche- 8-3

    Medal Round Wins- Lancaster Heat- 10-2, WNY Rally 12-2

    Gold Championship- Loss to Evans Force 6-3

    Championship Game vs Diamond Girls (Williams): 9-1

    The girls played a great all-around tournament complete with three home runs and 2 no-hitters by one of our pitchers!

    Congratulations girls!

    Lightning Wesolowski 12U was given one of the most competitive brackets going into the tournament.  Starting out Friday night with a loss in a close game versus Michigan Legacy, the girls were determined more than ever to get their bats going again and to win the tournament.  Saturday morning was a new day and the girls proved they were here to stay with three solid wins.  Sunday morning was a long day stretching over 13 hours but the girls made it to the championship game against the Delaware Cobras.  Only a few select Lightning teams have ever made it to championship game in the Aunt Rosie's tournament so to make it there is every bit an accomplishment.  Every girl comes to play and every girls wants to win.....no matter how the brackets are stacked against them, no matter how controversial the calls. Losing to the Cobras was unfortunate, but it proved to everyone watching that this team is something special.  Congratulations girls - well done!
