The defending champions, the Hillview Stingers were shocked right out of the gate when they fell behind 0-2 to the Berea Braves but roared back with a triple overtime win of game 3. Finally they succumbed in a close, unexpected, uncharacteristic low-scoring affair 5-4. It was indeed short and sweet, a well-played game with plenty of drama to boot. Hats off to the Hillview Stingers team on a close game. They certainly were the best team on paper, boasting all-around great stats but the most talented team we faced turned out to be the Grants Town Crusaders who pushed us to the limit in our 3 game series, which led us to our final series with Hillview and probably prepared us for everything Hillview could throw at us. To God be the glory for our victory, for teaching us what it means to play as a team, never giving up no matter what and to perservere and encourage one another through thick and thin.
