Xtreme rally, defeat Venom

One out away from defeat, Langley girls peewee fastball team pulls off come-from-behind victory

One out away from seeing their gold-medal dreams dashed, the Langley Xtreme ’03 instead flipped the script, rallying for victory.

The Xtreme U14B girls rep peewee softball team trailed the Valley Venom ’03 by a 5-0 count in the bottom of the fifth and were in danger of losing via the mercy rule if they failed to score a single run. And Langley did even better, bringing home seven runs — all of which came with two outs — and then tacking on another three runs over the next two innings to win 10-5.

The teams were playing in the championship final of the district playdowns over the weekend, which were hosted by the Langley Fastball Association at Noel Booth Park, to see who would advance to provincials.

Teams representing Langley, Abbotsford and Chilliwack were battling it out to see which would advance to next month’s provincial championships.

The Xtreme went 3-0 at districts, defeating the Valley Venom ’03 by an 11-4 score and topping the Valley Venom ’04 by a 10-3 count.
