It may have been sunny and 80 degrees but the 12U championship game was all Lightning! The ’06 and ’07 12U teams squared off in a pitchers battle in the Gold bracket Championship. The ’07 team came to play and gave the ’06 team everything they could handle. The ’07 team was led by ace pitcher Soraya Dorsey who went all 6 innings giving up 6 runs on 7 hits while striking out 8. Gianna Talarino was equal to the task giving up 1 run on 3 hits while striking out 9. Both teams played solid defense in support of their pitchers. After the ’07 team grabbed an early 1 run lead. The ’06 team was able to scratch across a single run in each inning for a 6-1 victory. Amazing weekend by both teams, Congratulations Lightning!
6.23.19 Eugene Lightning '07 played a doubleheader in Redmond vs Sunwest 12U on Saturday and slugged its way to 2 victories. Lightning took the first game 6-5 and the second game 12-7. Lightning '07 thanks the Sunwest coaches, players and parents for inviting us over and being awesome hosts! On Sunday the competitive instincts of the players took over as they formed two teams and competed in a scavenger hunt in Sisters! It was no holds barred competition to see which team could get the most points for finding the random items and performing the crazy tasks on their lists. Whether it's on the field or off the field, these kids love to have fun together and compete!
6.9.19 Eugene Lightning '07 played excellent defense and got the bats humming in Newberg, outscoring the competition 34-7 over the weekend and bringing home second place in the Gold division. Way to go lightbulbs!!
