Battle to be the best in the nation
Battling for the title of top team in the country are the Diamond Sports Hotshots from Texas and Georgia Impact Langston. The match pits two teams against each other who took very different paths to get to the Championship Game.
The much-hyped DS Hotshots lived up to their billing, going undefeated against the following teams:
Absolute Blast 8-0
Firecrackers Lopez 5-2
Corona Angels Carter 4-1
Firecrackers Brashear-Allan 5-3
OC Batbusters Flores 6-3
East Cobb Bullets 11-6
Meanwhile, Georgia Impact Langston won their first 2 games, but had to fight their way out of the loser’s bracket to get to the final game.
Texas Blaze Soriano – 5-0
Loss to OC Batbusters Flores 2-3
Birmingham Bolts 3-0
Firecrackers Brashear Allan 4-2
OC Batbusters Flores 7-1
Beverly Bandits 6-0
Beverly Bandits 6-4
The game will start at 1:30pm July 28 on Fox Sports West Prime Ticket, Comcast (Tape Delayed) and streamed live on FloSoftball.
Good luck to both teams!
