ISA 14U Gold Winter National
Your Diamond Dusters our the 2007 ISA 14U Gold Winter National Champs. Playing in the 14U division is not an easy adjustment. Moving from 43' to 40' pitching distance does come into play. There are also several strong hitting 14U teams to contend with.

Our first game was against Tampa Mustangs Turkel and the hitting problems started from the get go. The Mustangs pitcher was not overpowering speed wise but she could really hit her spots and make the Dusters swing at bad pitches. Very frustrating.
On the defensive end Lindsey R pitched lights out and the defense made it happen.
Final Score
DD 1 Mustangs 0

Next seeding game brought us face to face with the Mini-Bulls. They are a very strong and powerful team. Not unlike the Miami Mini-Canes they are also very passionate.
The Mini-Bulls pitcher threw well with a great rise ball.   Bekah however threw great also and kept the Mini-Bulls in check all game.   It became quite clear this game was to be lost on an error. Your DDs lost the game in the last inning on an error.
DD 0 Mini-Bulls 1

Our final seeding game was against the JAX Streamline. Lyndsey R pitched well until she got hit by a line drive to the foot and had to be relieved by Bekah. Bekah finished up strong. The bats started to come alive in this game. Finally!!
DD 5 Streamline 2

Seeding 3 we drew the Brevard Stealers. All I can say is WOW! The Stealers pitcher threw so much off speed stuff and junk our girls looked like 8 years old trying to hit her. She was very effective. On the opposite side of the ball the Stealers were tough. The 1-5 hitters on this team could hit. Bekah allowed 2 runs in the 1st Inning. She then settled down and kept the Stealers at bay the remainder of the game. Our hitters were finally able to adjust to the Stealers pitcher putting the ball in play and forcing the defense to work.
DD 4 Stealers 2


Semi Final Game
Finally the bats woke up and woke up with a vengeance. Every Duster got a hit in this game.   It was nice playing with a lead. Lyndsey as always pitched well, she needs to hurt her toe more often.
DD 10 Storm 0

Final Game
In walks JAX Streamline. This was a very neat game because it was podcast over the Internet just like a Pro event. The girls were interviewed, there were commercial breaks. Nice touch ISA and Softball Magazine!
The game itself was not a typical championship game as your Dusters run ruled the Streamline in 4.   
The fireworks started in the 1st with 2 on and Mighty Bailey stepping up to the plate. First pitch was a high fast ball which ended up landing about 30 feet on the other side of the center field fence. The girls were pumped. Again every single girl hit the ball hard. Bekah pitched very well only allowing 2 hits.
DD 10 Streamline 0

I want to bring up 2 points before I leave you.

Firstly, The last time your Dusters lost by more than 3 runs was back in March of 05 to the Caloosa Park Magic. Almost two years!

Secondly, This author believes there will be several more Dusters to follow in Bailey's footsteps with OTF HRs. Jessy, Judge and BK all have warning track power and hit the ball hard these last few tourneys.

ASA State Championships
What a trying weekend to play softball! The weather just would not cooperate. Lucky for us we received a bye and stayed in the winners bracket, only playing 3 games.

First up was the very passionate and spirited Miami Mini Canes. The outcome of this battle was never in doubt as we cruised to an 8-3 victory.
Dusters 8   Mini Canes 3

Next up was the Tampa Mustangs Blue. This team is almost a mirror image of our Dusters, average size, exceptional talent, smart and very well coached.
We lost the coin toss and batted first promptly scoring a run in our half of the 1st. The game made it through 2 1/2 innings before a rain delay was called. Fast forward almost 3 hours
and we pick up where we left off. The Mustangs held us scoreless in our half of the third. We slogged it out for 4 more innings keeping the Mustangs runners at bay. When the smoke (mud) cleared the Mighty Dusters were the victors.
Dusters 3 Mustangs 1


On to the Championship game.
Here come the Mini Canes again. Again we lose the coin toss and batted first. And Oh what a first! Scoring 7 runs in the first the outcome of this game was never in question. The Girls mercy ruled the Mini Canes in three, taking the 2005 12U ASA State Championship. Congratulations to the Mini-Canes for their berth to nationals
