J-Bears Place Wins USSSA Class E In Freeport

Nine Teams Participate In One day Tournament At Taylor Park On 6/25

FREEPORT: J-Bears Place (4-1) from Rockford won the 'if necessary game' over the Booze Brothers (5-2) from Freeport 6-4 to win the nine team USSSA Men's Class E National Qualifying Tournament held at Taylor Park in Freeport on June 25th. The champions will be playing at the USSSA Men's Class E Great Lakes National Tournament to be held in Waterloo, Iowa over Labor Day Weekend. Maplehurst farms/AHH (2-2) from Byron finished in third place with Northwest Pallet/Logo King/Boombah (2-2) from Crystal Lake taking home fourth place honors from this tournament.
J-Bears Place opened tournament play with an impressive 18-1 win over Dale Construction & Fencing in the first round of tournament play. Dale Construction & Fencing had drawn a pig tail game to get into the bracket and they defeated Neighbors bar & Grill/Windsor Auto Sales 7-5 in that game to advance into the first round of tournament action.
In their second contest of this tournament J-Bears Place squared off with Northwest Pallet/Logo King/Boombah and quickly hung another w on to the bracket board as they disposed of the Crystal Lake ball club by a final score of 11-0. Northwest Pallet/Logo King/Boombah made it to this second round game by defeating the Booze brothers 9-5 in the first round of play.
In the game between the last two remaining unbeaten teams J-Bears Place took the field against Maplehurst Farms/AHH and once again win by a impressive margin as they posted a 10-3 victory up onto the bracket board to assure themselves a spot in the tournament's championship game against whichever team that would win the loser's bracket to oppose them in the finals. Maplehurst farms/AHH made it to the undefeated game by opening tournament play with a narrow 4-3 win over Harlem Road Automotive in the first round of tournament play before they defeated Oilspots 7-4 in the second round to earn their place into the undefeated game of the tournament.
Now J-Bears Place had to sit and wait until the loser's bracket was played out to its final conclusion before knowing who would be their opponent in the championship game. When the last out was recorded in the loser's bracket it was the Booze Brothers ball club as the team still standing.
The Booze Brothers came out with the fire that had carried them all the way through the loser's bracket after they had lost their very first game played in this tournament and they fire took them to the victory circle once again as they defeated J-Bears Place 8-6 to force the playing of the 'if necessary game' in order to determine which of these two team would win the championship at this tournament.
The extra game was another close game with J-Bears Place getting the better of the Booze Brothers by a final score of 6-4 to complete J-Bears Place march to the title of this tournament.
J-Bears Place did not provide Illinois Softball Report with any team information, stats, highlights or quotes on how they were able to win this tournament.
The Booze Brothers did things the long and hard way by losing right out of the chute to Northwest Pallet/Logo Kings/Boombah 9-5 in the first round of tournament play. Now with their backs against the wall the Booze Brothers ran off five straight wins to force the need of having that extra game played in order to determine which of the two remaining teams would be the champion of this tournament. The first team to exit this tournament at the hand of the Booze Brothers ball was Dale Construction & Fencing who fell to the Booze Brothers by a final score of 14-2.
The Oilspots was excused from the tournament in the next go around as the Booze Brothers posted their second straight win up onto the bracket board by a final score of 8-4.
Northwest Pallet/Logo Kings/Boombah was excused next as they left with fourth place after losing to the Booze Brothers by a score of 14-4.
In the game that would determine which of these two teams that would earn the right to oppose J-Bears Place in the championship game it was the Booze Brothers slipping past Maplehurst Farms/AHH 10-9 ending them to the parking lot to pack their cars after finishing in third place.
The Booze Brothers now took on and defeated J-Bears Place 806 in the first contest between these two ball club and in doing so forced to the need to have that extra game played in order to determine which of these two remaining ball clubs would win the title in that showdown game. The extra game went in favor of J-Bears Place as the Booze Brothers were forced to settle for second place from this tournament.
The Booze Brothers did not supply Illinois Softball Report with any team information, highlights, stats or quotes on how they were able to make this strong run to the championship game to finish in second place at this tournament.
