The Livermore SMOKE 8U Summer Travel Ball team played inspired softball the entire weekend. With a tough pool play schedule on Saturday, we managed to go 2-1, beating Novato Heat and the Vallejo Hurricanes while losing a tough late afternoon matchup to the Pleasant Hill Panthers. On Sunday the girls from Livermore managed wins against the Rohnert Park Rebels and Pleasanton Phantom and found themselves once again matched up against the Pleasant Hill Panthers in the Championship Game. SMOKE would not be denied in this tough game, coming from behind twice to win the game in 6 innings by a score of 3-2. Great pitching, timely hitting and an unbelievable double play to end the game secured the Championship.
