The Langley Xtreme saved their best softball for the end of the last weekendâ€™s Lower Mainland Cup Girls Squirt B Tournament.
In the end, the Xtreme U12B girls took home gold from the June 28-30 tourney, hosted by the Vancouver Wildcats of the Vancouver Minor Softball Association.
Six teams in the 2003 Squirt B age group competed in the round robin.
The Xtreme had a so-so start, placing fourth out the six teams with a 2-2 round robin record.
The playoffs were held June 30 and the Xtreme won their quarterfinal game against the Chilliwack Mayhem â€™03, which moved them into the semifinal round against Surrey Storm â€™03, who were in first place after round robin play.
The semifinal was an extremely tense, with the Langley girls coming away with a 15-14 victory, after going into international softball rule.
The victory lifted the Xtreme into the gold medal game against the Cloverdale Fury â€™03.
After another tense and closely contested game, the Xtreme clipped Cloverdale Fury 12-11 to win the Lower Mainland Cup.
