Last week, the METx 11U-Massiatte team finished up their 2017 Spring/Summer season with a World Series Championship! The team traveled to Dallas/Fort Worth July 7-12, 2017 to participate in the USSSA AAA World Series.
After going 3-0 in pool play, they earned the #2 seed going into bracket play. METx opened the 28-team double elimination bracket with their second victory of the tournament over STA-MO Storm, 5-3. The following day, the team would advance to the winner’s bracket finals with two victories over Dallas Tigers East-Riebock (9-3) and Deep South Bandidos-Royal (12-4).
The final day of the tournament would see familiar foes battle it out not only once, but twice. METx had already defeated Citius USA-Urbano 5-2 in pool play, but would have to get past them in the winner’s bracket final. After beating them for a second time in the tournament, 16-3, Citius USA-Urbano would fight back through the loser’s bracket championship, to force a third rematch with METx 11U-Massiatte. Citius USA-Urbano would have to beat METx twice to take home the title. However, one game was all that was needed, as METx defeated Citius USA-Urbano, 13-0, to finish a perfect 8-0 on the week!
Congratulations to all METx 11U-Massiatte players, coaches, and parents on a great season!
