Congratulations to the 18U Blasters on a fantastic Second place finish in the USSSA State Tournament held in Joliet this past weekend. The Blasters won their first three games Sunday with great defense and pitching as they surrendered just 5 runs in those contests. They knocked off the Stateline Fury 8-3, then shut out the Park Ridge Pistols 5-0 and took down the Erie Explosion in an international tie breaker 6-2. This set up the championship game with the Amboy Rage. The Rage’s pitching proved to be too much as the Blasters fell short 4-0. Riley Landenberger and Haley Solberg were named to the all tournament team with Karissa Dobson earning the CO-MVP of the tournament! Wish all of the Blasters teams good luck as they head to Sycamore this weekend for the Storm Dayz tournament. The action begins Friday morning as the 18U Blasters take on the KV Storm.
