A portion of this year's adult summer softball play has concluded with tournament action in both the Monday and Tuesday coed leagues. Neither of the league winners survived tournament play to capture a post-season title.
Delta Metals was the Monday Silver League champion with a 10-2 record (tied with Edward Jones) and Delta Family Fun Park breezed through Tuesday's Gold League play with an 11-1 slate.
All Glass Station, the number four seed in Monday night play, finished the regular season with an 8-4 record and then ran the table with four straight wins to earn the tournament title with a win over number two Edward Jones Investments in the championship game on July 15.
All Glass began tournament play with a win over The Cutters and then rolled past top-seeded Delta Metals in its second game. A meeting with US Bank a week later was a win for All Glass and a berth in the title game.
Edward Jones opened the tournament with a win over Double J Trash Cans and then fell to number three US Bank in its second game. A 20-7 win over The Cutters (fifth seed) in loser's-bracket play kept Edward Jones' hopes alive.
Delta Metals won its first game in loser's-bracket play with a 21-2 decision over Double J Trash Cans. They were eliminated from further tournament action when Edward Jones defeated them in their next game.
US Bank (8-4) would try to slow down Edward Jones' run to the title game in a 7 p.m. game on July 15. The investment crew was too much for US Bank and they moved on to face All Glass Station in an unsuccessful bid for the tournament title.
Delta Family Fun Park owned a two-game lead over Wells Fargo Home Mortgage to enter tournament play as the number one seed.
Wells Fargo opened with a win over Bad News Bears (#3) and Delta Family Fun Park squeaked past number four Twist Off to earn a meeting against each other in their second games of the tournament. Wells Fargo remained un beaten with a 14-12 win while Delta Family dropped into the losers' bracket.
The league's bottom team, Hellman Chevy (1-11) lost big to Twist Off, dropping into the losers' bracket where they won two straight, including a revenge win (23-14) over Twist Off. Delta Family Fun Park eliminated Hellman's with a 12-9 win.
Delta Family Fun Park had to win twice over Wells Fargo in order to win the tournament title. They managed to send the championship to a second game after winning game one 11-6. Wells Fargo had too much for its challengers in game two as it rolled to a 14-4 victory.
Tournament action in the men's and women's division on Thursday night had to take a back seat to Mother Nature as a violent storm halted play.
Balls Deep (13-1) is the number one seed in the men's division and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage (10-2) is the top women's team in tourney play.blog comments powered by Disqus
