12U continued on to battle the Franklin Eagles at 7:00pm and won 50-25, placing them in the final rounds for Sunday.
The final rounds on Sunday began pretty much the same as Saturday, with CAVS winning against the AVAC Hoyas, 53-16.
The real action began when CAVS 12U found themselves back in the saddle once again, with Vegas Elite. Remember, we just battled it out with them at OUR Holiday Classics, where we brought home the championship? It was intense, then. Needless to say, Vegas Elite probably wanted our heads. Stress was high and tempers were flaring, from coaches to parents, to referees. You would have thought folks had MONEY on that game.
Congrats to Chasen Pender, who received the main first place team trophy (you know…the one about three feet tall) for all of his efforts this weekend. Our other boys were fire, but Chasen was a towering inferno. WE SEE YOU, CHASEN PENDER!!
Shouts out to 12U’s Coach Darryl, who after 20 years of winning tournaments (and who probably has to rent out the Staples Center if he wants to actually display all of his championship trophies) is handing them to whatever player that exhibited their very best efforts in the overall tourney. GREAT idea, coach!!
