Loser's Bracket Final
In this game the Canes came out swinging against Mojo/Evans (Easton) and with the teams combining to score a total of 53 runs, the Canes came away with a 31-22 victory and advanced to the Championship Game.
In the Championship Game the Canes would need to force an if-game and defeat Sons of Italy (Lewistown) twice in the finals, since Sons of Italy was undefeated.
It wasn't going to be easy since the Sons of Italy team had won every game in the tournament, except one game, by 10 runs or more.
The Canes gave it their best shot but couldn't match the offensive output of Sons of Italy and lost 24-7.
The Canes had a very good tournament and represented both the Millennium Sunday Softball League and District 6 well by going 3-2 and finishing in 2nd place.
