Resmondo Specialty Tank/Worth came from behind in 3 consecutive games Sunday after losing to Laservision/H Auto/JJ’s/Easton in the winner’s bracket championship earlier that morning, to win the 2014 Nationwide Conference USSSA Championships!
The winner’s bracket championship was moved to Sunday morning at 9 AM after rain washed out Friday nights games and pushed the winner’s bracket into Sunday. Laservision won that game 18-15. In the 95 degree heat and suffocating humidity this appeared to be the win Laservision needed to win the Conference Championship and take home the #1 seed for the Major World Series.
But Resmondo who then trailed Albicocco/The Scene/Easton/Elite in the loser’s bracket championship 14-7 going into the bottom of the 7th inning, ended up winning on a Nick Santana walkoff double 15-14! Then a tired Resmondo team found a second wind and “double dipped” Laservision 22-17 and 24-16 to win the tournament and maintain the #1 seed for the Major World Series. This means they will be home team in every game they play there.
Resmondo just would not give up no matter how big the deficit and persevered like no other team to win.
Team Albicocco was an impressive third as they beat both Backman/Shoppe/Louisville Slugger and Baugh Ford/Doerflinger/National Pawn/Klutch/Easton on Sunday morning.
In other action Team Combat/Softball.com won the “if” necessary game of the “Open” bracket championship 13-8 over Red’s Astros/Louisville Slugger. And Above All Landscap/GWS defeated Xtreme/Miken 8-4 and went an undefeated 4-0 to win the Conference Qualifier 10 team tournament to earn a berth to the Major World Series as the #17 seed!
