Tuesday, July 18, 2017 has been anticipated by the 10U softball division for months! The long time rivals Bandits and the Riptide were set to square off in the long anticipated 10U fast pitch championship game!
The Bandits entered the game undefeated (12-0) while the Riptide(9-4) earned the reputation of being the most versatile team in the league, earning their spot in the championship by taking down the Force(11-1).
The early innings were a classic pitching dual but that was short lived as the Bandits bats quickly came alive and provided the offense that was needed to jump out to an early lead.
The Riptides stingy defense was determined to limit the Bandits and give there offense an opportunity to shine as it has the entire year however, the Bandits solid pitching and in sink defense proved to be the difference maker in this hard fought battle.
The Bandits went on to solidify their undefeated season by winning the 10U Championship. A great effort by both teams and seasons that all can be proud of.
