Nationwide Conference USSSA!
Tulsa – Oklahoma
Championship game – Newbreed hitting against All Out
The Tulsa Major had their biggest field of teams yet, 30, and they played the first two rounds on Friday night. There were 10 Conference teams and Xtreme/Miken/ASP/Athlon (MN-AA) and Nightmare/Miken (MO-AA) received first round byes as the tournament was seeded on Conference points. There was only one upset in the first round which was Ridgeline/BMS (OK-C) over Classic Glass and the other 7 Conference teams advanced. In the second round, Nightmare scored 50 against Hittin Bottom, while Nallys/D&D/Beserk (MO-A) – Newbreed/Steel Sports/Demarini (WA-AA) – Vivid/Killbombers/Easton (TX-A) – AllOut/A&A/Steel (TX-AA) – Seminoles/TPS/NACSF – and Xtreme all advanced by the run rule. And Team Fan Apparel (AR-A), some of the old FBI group, beat Ridgeline 33-18.
In the final 8 of the winner's bracket which started at 12:30 PM Central time on Saturday, Team Fan Apparel upset Xtreme 38-28, All Out beat Seminoles by 11, Newbreed beat Vivid by 14, and Nightmare advanced past Nally's 33-14. In the final 4 it was Newbreed over Nightmare 34-32 in a battle of 'AA' teams, and All Out sending Team Fan Apparel to the loser's bracket 38-29. In the winner's bracket championship on Saturday night Newbreed beat All Out 28-26 to end a long hot day.
In the loser's bracket pretty much the teams that dropped down beat the teams that were already in the loser's bracket most of the time. One early round matchup in the lower half of the loser's bracket had Olmito Heat beating Classic Glass 28-25 in a battle of Conference teams. Vivid then beat Olmito but lost to Nallys. And Nallys beat Team Fan Apparel 25-17 and then on Sunday morning lost to Xtreme 40-14 before Xtreme beat All Out 27-26 in the loser's bracket finals on a walk off single. In the championship the undefeated Newbreed quickly finished off a banged up All Out team 23-8 to capture their first Conference tournament win of the season!
