The U9 American team from Mansfield had such a great run in this weekend’s tournament in Attleboro, but came up short. The boys started there run on Saturday by crushing Medfield 12-2 in the morning. The boys set their sights on Cranston, RI for the afternoon game were they cruised to a 9-1 win. After going 2-0 on Saturday they were tied at 2-0 with Wrentham in the division. It came down to Sunday morning to see who would win the division and advance to the semi-finals.

Mansfield came out of the gate quick and routed Wrentham 10-2. The boys won 
their division and advanced to the semi-finals of the tournament were they faced Milton. After trailing Milton most of the game. The boys made an incredible come from behind win. They scored 9 runs in the last 2 innings and won 11-10 to face Wellesley in the championship game. Unfortunately, the boys faced a very good team and could never catch Wellesley. The final was 12-5.

The boys have nothing to hang their heads about. From Saturday to Sunday they showed how much determination they have as a team. This should motivate them this weekend as they play in the Mansfield tournament.
