JR’s Offspring beat Mojo’s, to win the championship
The quality of play in the league greatly improved this year. Even the new teams played at a higher level than last year. It was great to see most teams returning from last year as well as adding new teams. The league is growing and getting better. Now we just need lights!Chris Cope
Final score of the championship game between Mojo and JR’s Offspring was 13-10 JR’s. Chris Cope, the unofficial organizer, said, “Congrats, again, to Jr’s Offspring for taking the title for the second straight year.” Thank you to Lisa Ramsey, town hall recreation coordinator, for making this fun activity happen in 2022!

The SCORE as of ONE WEEK BEFORE PLAYOFFS (& Comments):
The Hooligans beat the One Hose Wonders last night in their make-up game. I thought that was pointless, but it turns out that it was important.
As a result, One Hose and Natural Disasters tied for 6th at 3-5. Due to the head-to-head results, the Disasters will play the Hooligans in the 5-6 game. One Hose slips into the 7-8 game.
Here is the official line up. Note that the start times are moved up 15 minutes due to lighting. Also note that the championship game is played first, at 5:45, to ensure that they can finish before we run out of light, unlike last year. The higher seed is the home team.
Championship game: 5:45 p.m., Bohn Field
Mojo’s (1) vs Jr’s Offspring (2). Possibly the most improved team in the history of Lyons softball vs the defending champs. If the last game is any indication, this will be intense.
For the first time ever – AWARDS for the champion in the shelter between fields after the first game. Parks is also ordering a plaque that will list the champs, starting with last year’s champ.
3 vs 4, 5:45 Vasquez Field
Howlers (3) vs St Vrain Market (4)
The Howlers took a step up this year. St Vrain had a great first year.
5 vs 6, 6:45 Bohn Field
Hooligans (5) vs Natural Disasters (6)
Two very old teams, who have shown their age this year. Both are eagerly hoping they can get Theo for next year.
7 vs 8, 6:45 Vasquez Field
One Hose Wonders (7) vs Spirit Hound ( 8 )
Strong first year back for the fire dept. Our defending runner-ups having a rebuild year.
I should also point out that the first-year team Squirrels showed incredible sportsmanship at the end. The decision of #8 vs #9 came down to them conceding to Spirit Hound because they felt they were the better team. I’m not aware of what our 3rd tiebreaker is, so this was incredibly generous. Great first year Brett Riley.
