And the Des Plaines All-Star team lost their elimination game tonight 10-9. The girls gave it a great try, but couldn't quite pull it out in the end. In any case, they are a great bunch of girls.
In other news, the people who run the tourney deserve to be severely chastised for changing the posted tourney rules after their initial posting without letting all of the coaches know that they'd posted an updated set of rules and what the changes were. When we have one set of rules in our dugout and the other team has a different set of rules in their dugout, there are not going to be any good outcomes.
Sadly, it did make a difference.
But it didn't stop the girls from trying. And good for them.
