The NYO Attack 10U team continued its remarkable summer with a championship at the Andee's Army Invitational hosted at NYO on June 19-20, 2015. After surviving pool play undefeathed, the Attack entered 10U Gold bracket play as the #2 seed (losing a coin toss for the top spot). The Attack defeated the NYO Psych Outs in the semi-finals in a close, hard-fought affair, and advanced to meet the West Cobb Invaders in the finals. Although the Attack jumped out to an early lead, the tough Invaders came back to even the score 3-3 entering the final inning. NYO tallied two runs in the top of the inning for a 5-3 lead, but in the bottom half, the Invaders fought back to score one run and load the bases with only one out. Clinging to a 5-4 lead, NYO Attack pitcher Quinn Schaeffer (with some great defensive help from catcher Reagan Southerland) stepped up with two strikeouts to end the game and secure the title for the NYO Attack. The team endured a lengthy rain delay during the last day of the tournament and wrapped up the championship just before 11:00pm. Congratulations to the NYO Attack players and coaches for another excellent performance!
