Langley Xtreme claws to gold

The Langley Xtreme saved their best softball for the end of the last weekend’s Lower Mainland Cup Girls Squirt B Tournament.

In the end, the Xtreme U12B girls took home gold from the June 28-30 tourney, hosted by the Vancouver Wildcats of the Vancouver Minor Softball Association.

Six teams in the 2003 Squirt B age group competed in the round robin.

The Xtreme had a so-so start, placing fourth out the six teams with a 2-2 round robin record.  

The playoffs were held June 30 and the Xtreme won their quarterfinal game against the Chilliwack Mayhem ’03, which moved them into the semifinal round against Surrey Storm ’03, who were in first place after round robin play.

The semifinal was an extremely tense, with the Langley girls coming away with a 15-14 victory, after going into international softball rule.

The victory lifted the Xtreme into the gold medal game against the Cloverdale Fury ’03.

After another tense and closely contested game, the Xtreme clipped Cloverdale Fury 12-11 to win the Lower Mainland Cup.
