It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.
The Langley Xtreme 2003 squirt B rep softball team proved that true in capturing the Lower Mainland Cup.
The tournament was hosted by the Vancouver Minor Softball Association at Trafalgar Park and Carnarvon Park from June 28 to June 30.
The Xtreme went 2-2 in the round robin and were seeded fourth out of six teams for the playoff round.
But the team caught fire, defeating the Chilliwack Mayhem in the quarter-finals, and then 15-14 over the top-ranked Surrey Storm in the semifinals.
That set up a showdown with the Cloverdale Fury for the gold medal and the Xtreme delivered with their second straight narrow victory, this time 12-11.
