Texas Glory defeated Team TFS-Heintzelman 8-4 Sunday afternoon in the 18U Gold championship after battling through a semifinal win over Texas Bombers Gold. Glory had received a first-round bye in bracket play after going 3-0 in pool play.

After the game, Texas Glory head coach Tracy Beard talked about the experience, "We brought a lot of our uncommitted and younger kids, and they all really rallied together. Our bats came alive. That really shows what we have for the future."


Other bracket winners on Sunday included the Bombers Gold South in the 18U Silver bracket, II Nationals Gold in the 18U Bronze, Texas Elite-Baker in the 18U Copper, Texas Dirtbags in the 16U Red and the Austin Stars in the 16U White.
