Kimball’s 14U softball team ventured out west to New -London-Spicer for the Dirt ’N Turf Softball tournament Sunday,
June 30, and finished 2-1 for the day.
The Cubs fell behind early in the first game against the -Aitkin Flying Gobblers 4-2 after two innings, but rallied in the bottom of the last inning to take the dramatic walk-off win of 7-6 on the turf field.
Game two was a little more relaxing with the Lady Cubs scoring 10 runs in the first inning against Minnewaska and coasting to a solid 15-6 victory.
Because of the tie breaker rules, Kimball landed in the Second Place game against a very good Albany team where the Cubs fell behind early again 3-8 after two innings played. They continued to chip away each inning, but ran out of outs and lost 7-9.
It was a great tournament for the Lady Cubs as our bats came alive and our defense was solid.
