There was definitely fireworks at the NSA Firework Frenzy Tournament in Clearwater this weekend when TEAM PFX 12U Red, and TEAM PFX 14U both took home Runner – Up in the double elimination tournament!
TEAM PFX 14U earned the number 2 seed going into the double elimination bracket. Both of their losses game to the eventually Champions, Team Bownet. 14Us first elimination loss to Team Bownet went into 3 extra innings with outstanding play from both teams, but PFX came up short with an 8-7 loss.
TEAM PFX 12U Red earned the Number 1 seed heading into double elimination. The girls lost their first game on Sunday, so they had to win the next 3 to take home the Championship. The bats busted out in the Championship when PFX scored 16 runs to force the “IF NECESSARY” game. Unfortunately, after a 2 hour weather delay, TEAM PFX seemed to run out of gas as they lost 7-3 in the Championship.
The tournament director named MVPS to THREE of our TEAM PFX players for their outstanding play. 14U player, Alyssia Gonzalez (2022) had a game saving diving catch in the extra inning loss to Team Bownet. 12U Players, Ava Abel and Ella Carroll, also earned MVP for their double plays and diving catches all weekend in the middle infield. Congratulations ladies on your play this weekend!
This was the last weekend for the summer season for TEAM PFX 14U and TEAM PFX 12U Red. The teams will now take some time off to enjoy summer and be kids!
