UTM 2K2 Bantam team participated in the Cayuga Lady Luck tournament this past weekend in Buffalo. The team played 5-games over the two days, the first games collectively together for the 2017-2018 season. A lot of positive things were seen over the weekend, the team’s pitchers performed well, and the team had some timely hitting, including a late inning rally to force a tie-breaker in the Silver Pool final Sunday afternoon.
A record of 2-3-0 was the final after the last game played Sunday. Pool play included a win vs the WNY Avalanche, and a tough loss to the USSSA Pride (the tournament champion). The 3rd pool game was a loss vs a talented NY Inferno team. A 1-2-0 record in pool play, meant a 9-seed and the Silver playoff pool. Sunday opened with a win, setting up the final vs the WNY Avalanche 01' squad. In a great fall game, UTM battled back from 4-runs down, to force ITB. In the end a great throw from the WNY Avalanche OF proved to be the difference.
