Elimination rounds consisted of a 7-1 win over the CT Eliminators a 4-0 win over the CT Jades, and a 8-0 win over the Titans in the Championship game. The team finished the weekend with a perfect 6-0 record.

16-U Black, PONY Nationals, Sterling VA, 25 teams, Pool play saw a 12-0 win over the Maryland Express followed by a 9-2 loss to the Jersey Intensity and a 4-0 loss to the Ashburn Shooting Stars. This earned the team a #3 seed out of their pool and the Bracket play followed with a 10-2 loss to the Ridgewood Raiders followed by a 7-0 win over the East Coast Tsunami and a 12-1 win over the New Jersey Sparks. This set the team up to play the East Coast Tsunami again, a win there and one more would advance the team to the Elite Eight. We will never know what may have been. Due to heavy rains and a schedule with no back-up plan for such weather the PONY East Zone Director made an executive decision that any teams wh had a Bracket play loss going into Saturday were eliminated. The 8 teams that entered Saturday undefeated in Bracket play, regardless of their Saturday game results, would be moved forward to the Elite Eight. This horrible decision eliminated at least 12 teams that were still fighting. Our Black team had found their voice, their emotion, and their desire and were devastated by PONY's decision. They finished Nationals with a 3-3 record and dashed dreams.

16-U Teal, PONY Nationals, Sterling VA, 25 teams, Pool play saw a 10-0 win vs the Ukraine (supplemented by players from the Hampton Roads Warriors), a 6-0 win over the Ridgewood Raiders, and concluded with a 10-2 win over the Bay State Blaze. This earned the team a #1 seed from their pool and a first game bye in Bracket play. Next was a 12-0 victory over the Lakeshore Lightning (MD), followed by a 4-0 win over Jersey Intensity. This put the team into the Elite Eight for a second consecutive year. The PONY decision regarding how to deal with the rains, the affect it had on our younger (15 y/o) team as well as our older (18-U) team coupled with self-inflicted distraction/drama the Sunday Elite Eight Play-off rounds looked daunting. To their mental credit the girls focused in and pulled together, even after more delays due to field conditions they put up a 3-1 win over the NY Diamond Girls, to get to the point they were eliminated last season, then a 1-0 victory over the Ashburn Shooting Stars advancing them to the Title Game. The good guys played a valiant game before falling 2-1 to the NY Inferno. The same team (Coach and some players) that had eliminated them last season. Still they overcame much, going 7-1 for the tournament and earning a Second Place Finish.

18-U, PONY Nationals, Sterling VA, 32 teams, Pool play on Thursday went very well with a 6-2 win over the Central PA Wolfpack, 11-5 win over the Jersey Girls Red, and a 5-4 win over the Susquehanna Slam. This earned the team a #1 seed from their pool and a Friday 6-0 win over the Redbirds Black pushing them to Saturday. Two wins on Saturday would mean the Elite Eight but the team was defeated 7-6 in ITB by the Phantoms Fastpitch Gold. Now three straight wins, on Saturday, were needed to get to Sunday. After the emotional ITB loss the team needed to swap fields and play again immediately. Our catcher went down with Heat Stroke/Exhaustion being taken away by ambulance (she would recover nicely, but a huge hit to the team in both talent and emotions). The game vs the Diamond State Swoop-devils was in the 4th inning when the rains came chasing them from the fields. PONY's terrible decision was the same for the 18-U Division, any teams who had lost a Bracket Play game were eliminated without the chance to fight back. This included our 18-U team. So with a 4-1 record they were unceremoniously dismissed. Completely unfair.

Despite an organizational record of 31-12-1 for the time period with 1 Championship and 2 Runners-Up we have players and parents that are understandably shaken by the events in this time period. We as an organization will be looking hard at plans for next season and which, if any, Nationals we will attend.

6/17-18/2017
Despite some weather issues it was another overall successful weekend for the CT Bombers;

12-U Black, Dynamites Classic, Taunton MA, (5 teams) due to weather/field issues the pool play was cut to 2 games. The team went 1-1 in a pair of 2-0 games. Sunday pitted this (younger) team against their sister (older) team for the first game of the day. Despite a valiant effort, the Black team went down 7-0 finishing the weekend 1-2 but due to the unexpectedly smaller than normal tournament size, this was a Third Place finish.

12-U White, Dynamites Classic, Taunton MA, (5 teams) due to weather/field issues the pool play was cut to 2 games. The team went 2-0 heading into elimination rounds. As noted above they prevailed in the first game 7-0 advancing to the finals, once again, where they fell by a score of 2-1 capturing Second Place and ending the weekend 3-1.

14-U Black, Father's Day Slugfest, Norwich CT (7 teams), the 13 y/o team went 1-2 in pool play and fell in their first elimination game, in ITB, to a team that had beaten them by one in pool play. It was noted that they played far better than their 1-3 record would indicate.

14-U White, Father's Day Slugfest, Norwich CT (7 teams), the 14 y/o team went 3-0-1 on Saturday, picking up the extra game due to an odd number of teams. The tie did not count in seeding, and they were the overall #1 seed going into Sunday's elimination rounds. The team lost in the semi-finals to the team they had tied on Saturday who went on to win the tournament. They finished the weekend at 3-1.

16-U Black, Father's Day Slugfest, Franklin CT (8 teams), the squad went 3-0 on Saturday earning the #2 Seed for Sunday. After wining the opening game they were pushed a little harder in the semi-finals needing to score 1 in the bottom of the seventh to advance to the finals. The finals pitted the Black team against the #1 Seeded Teal team where they fought hard in finishing in Second Place ending the weekend with a 5-1 record.

16-U Teal, Father's Day Slugfest, Franklin CT (8 teams), in a workman like manner the team went 3-0 on Saturday earning the #1 seed for Sunday. While not overpowering anyone the team marched through the first two opponents to advance to the finals where they faced the Black team. The game, like the rest of the weekend, seemed to lack energy and emotion but, the team worked together to earn a 9-2 victory, the Championship, and ending the weekend with a 6-0 record allowing only 5 runs.

18-U, Xtreme Father's Day, Swansea MA, (28 teams) starting with a delay due to field conditions didn't slow the team down, starting with two quick wins before a rough loss to end the day, pool play concluded with a 2-1 record and the #2 seed from their Pool. Sunday would require 5 wins to get to the finals, 6 to win it all, certainly a tall order. The team put their heads and went to work winning games 6-4, 5-2, & 6-0 before falling 9-3 in their fourth game of the day in the Quarter Finals. A long tiring weekend earning a 5-2 record and Fifth Place in a large quality tournament.

The Organization was 24-12 with 1 Championship and 2 Second Places

14-U White, RI Xtreme Mayfly, West Greenwhich RI, the team went 0-3 on Friday/Saturday, all three forfeits as they didn't have enough players released from High School to be able to field a team. Due to a team being eliminated from the State Tournament on Saturday, this team could compete on Sunday.  The team of 8, two outfielders and an out every time the ninth spot came up did well, they won their first game 3-0, then took out the #1 seed in game two, to advance to the Finals. Leading 5-1 into the 6th inning before reality caught up, two outfielders, oh and only one pitcher throwing her third game of the day, a makeshift infield etc. etc. etc. the good guys went down 6-5 earning a Second Place and finishing the weekend 2-1.
