The 16u Pratt girls came back Sunday 6/28 to face the Richmond Blues, a win here would put the girls into the championship game, a loss meant they would have battle their way to the top. The Outlaws started off strong and had the lead for most of the game, unfortunately they lost 5-4 in the last inning.

The girls turned around and immediately played the Richmond Blues in the championship game, they came off strong scoring 3 runs at their first at bat. This was a tumultuous game, as the Blues scored 10 runs at their first at bat, the Outlaws weren't giving up and battled back putting up runs along the way. The girls played hard but ultimately ended up losing the game 15-11. It was a tough loss, but both teams worked hard. The 16u Outlaws Pratt girls took second place and earned their NSA World Series berth! Great job OUTLAWS!!!
