Lightning 12U-Montgomery were losing 10-0 after two innings of play in the semi-final game against the Irvine Dolphins. But the team never quit. After a 5-run third inning and chipping away with two more in the 4th, the score was 10-7. Both teams scored a run in the 5th inning but the Dolphin lead would dissolve as the Lightning scored 3 runs in the 6th to tie it up. In the 7th, the Lightning held them and put up a run to win the game in walk-off fashion.
In the Championship game against Next Level Baseball, the Lightning came out to an early 6 to 1 lead. Their opponents added 4 runs in the top of the 5th to make it 6 to 5. An insurance run in the bottom of the sixth inning would be all the Lightning would need to win the CCYB league title by a score of 7-5. Congrats to all our players, coaches and parents on a great spring season.
