12U Carlson takes 2nd at NSA Line Drive Grand Slam and earns their World Series berth!
Another excellent weekend for Softball and the 12U Carlson team continues to perform at the top of their game. During the Line Drive Grand Slam tournament, Saturday games would start off with an early game against the Freeland Elite team. With a rather impressive win, the next game would be against the Midland Lady Explorers. 12U Carlson pulled it together and won their 2nd game of the day, only allowing 2 runs in 2 games. This would qualify them for the #1 position in their bracket, and Sunday would be their first bracket game.
The 12U team would need to win (3) games on Sunday to take the Championship. Their first game was against the Lady Crusaders, if they were to win this would put the team into the quarterfinals against MI Bulldogs North. Another impressive win and the 12U Carlson team was into the quarterfinals. This would be the second time 12U Carlson played MI Bulldogs North, having played them earlier in the 2015 season. It was a hard tough battle between the two teams, with the Outlaws batting around in one inning sealing the win to head to the finals.
This would be the 4th Championship game that the Outlaws 12U team would be in for this 2015 season. The Finals of the NSA Line Drive Grand Slam would put two undefeated teams against one another (Line Drive Express Maroon vs. Outlaws 12U Carlson). It was a very close and tough battle with the score 3-2 in favor of Line Drive, a couple of errors would add 2 more runs for Line Drive late in the game. Once the dust settled Line Drive Express Maroon came out on top 5-3. The 12U Outlaws Carlson girls took their 4th second place trophy and earned their NSA World Series berth! Great Job OUTLAWS!!!
