Picking up where they left off last year, the 12U South Orange Maplewood travel summer team won the 11th annual Mt. Olive 12A 50/70 tournament this past Memorial Day weekend. The SOM Red Cougars battled to a 5-1-1 record including a very thrilling final game vs. a strong Northampton County PA squad.
The Cougars were down three times in this game including a 14-10 deficit going into the 6th where they rallied to send it into extra innings. Holding off a bases loaded, no out situation in the bottom of the 7th, the Cougars hung tough and won it 15-14 in 8 innings. Congratulations to the boys for starting their season with a hard fought victory.
