14u top teams this season

by Schmick » Mon Mar 18, 2019 11:36 am

TCS March Mayhem had a few of the top 05 /2023 teams going at it this weekend.
Only problem was they split the tournament in to 2 divisions with one side playing at OC Great Park and another at Steed Park.

At OC Great Park Mercado Hovermale won the title over Corona Angels Edwards. Firecrackers Brashear 2023 and Ohana Quarles/Sanchez were also in that division

In the Open division Firecrackers Brashear/Mata won the title over So Cal As Medina/Briggs. Explosion Denaio/Alaan, AZ Storm, Ohana Limardo.... were also in that division. Open was a larger division with over 30 teams in it and Gold, Silver and Bronze brackets.

Corona Angels Ortega wins the tournament beating Mercado Athletics Hovermale in the championship.
So Cal Athletics Medina/Briggs and Mercado Athletics Tidd were the other teams in the semi-finals.

A lot of strong teams in this tournament

Firecrackers Holcomb/Knight lost 2 games (Firecrackers Brashear 2023 in pool play and So Cal As Medina/Briggs in the gold bracket quarterfinals.
Mercado Tidd's only loss was in the Gold semis to Mercado Hovermale
Mercado Hovermale lost in the championship and in pool play to Cal Cruisers Caouette.
Cal Cruisers Caouette' s only loss was the So Cal As Medina Briggs
Ohana Tigers Limardo lost twice losing in pool play to Breakers Labs Blue and then in the bracket to Mercado As Hovermale
Breakers Labs Blue also lost their bracket game to So Cal As Medina/Briggs
Firecrackers Brashear 2023 won their pool 3-0-0 but lost their first bracket game to LTG Henderson/Lively
Corona Angels Ortega lost a pool play game to Choppers Faucett
Corona Angels Jordan/Edwards lost the silver bracket (19th-20) places game to Corona Angels Kam23, in pool play Corona Angels Jordan Edwards lost to Batbusters Welbaum and Firecrackers Holcomb/Knight/Lopez

Was a good weekend of softball. Some of these teams looked great, some looked like they were a bit rusty and some looked like they need some depth. It was 4 or 5 games to reach the finals on Sunday and riding one or even 2 pitchers all day wasn't going to cut it.
There is a pretty big difference between the top 15 teams or so that were in the gold bracket and the 30 or so teams in the silver and bronze brackets.

Sure was good to have the sun back out in So Cal

Other than the OC Batbusters Campbell team, Firecrackers SD Brashear, Ohana Tigers Quarles/Sanchez and the Explosion Denaio/Alaan team it looked like all of the top 2023 teams in So Cal were in Elsinore over the weekend.

Top 10 2023 teams in So Cal (in no particular order) in my estimate would be

Corona Angels Ortega
Mercado Athletics Hovermale
Mercado Athletics Tidd
Firecrackers SD Brashear 2023
Firecrackers Holcomb/Knight
Firecrackers Brashear 2023
Ohana Tigers Quarles/Sanchez
So Cal Athletics Medina/Briggs
Explosion Denaio/Alaan
OC Batbusters Campbell (Stith?)


If you have other teams worthy of mention, bring them up

Mercado Hovermale beat Mercado Tidd 1-0 in the championship of the TCS Aprils Finest Tournament, the last tournament before the class of 2022 girls return.

We'll see how everyone looks with Play for Hope, Zoom in to June and Surf City Showcase as it gets closer and closer to seasons end

They didn't play each other for the championship. TCS has to put a winner so they just put down 1-0. They co-champ the tourney.

Getting late? School the next day?
Scheduled 4:45 start which we know never holds. Plus it could have been the 5th game of the day. Nobody needs to be playing 5 games in a day in April
