Red Rock R&R Men's League champs second year in a row
The Fredonia Summer Softball Men’s League Tournament was the place to be last week! Monday night’s games were fierce, with underdog KCSO Hogs starting with a slim win against Red Rock R&R, 23-22. The Lynx battled Dirt Stars for a big 28-15 win, and in the final game of the evening, Lotsa Motsa eliminated KCSO Hogs 16-13.
Pouring rain kept the teams from the diamond Wednesday, but Friday, the lights stayed on until 1:30 a.m., as the teams made up for lost games.
Friday night’s games were packed with non-stop excitement, beginning with Red Rock R&R taking the win against Dirt Stars 28-23. The loss put Dirt Stars in fourth place in the tournament.
The battle continued with Lynx Fuel beating Lotsa Motsa 19-15. Lotsa Motsa slid into third place with a loss against Red Rock R&R, who dominated the field, beating the pizza pros 32-13.
As the night cooled down, the tournament heated up! The battle for first place was in full swing with Red Rock R&R giving Lynx Fuel their first loss of the tournament 23-16. Because it was Lynx’ first loss, one more game had to be played to determine the champion. The final game, which was played into the wee hours of the night, gave Red Rock R&R the opportunity to shine. Beating Lynx 40-21, the team earned the Fredonia Men’s League Championship trophy for the second year in a row! Congratulations Red Rock R&R!
