* 14-and-under girls -- The Union Bridge Eagles, which rolled up a 17-1 record en route to their second consecutive 14-under division regular-season title, won three of four tournament contests to take the postseason crown for the second consecutive year at Lions Club Park in Winfield.

The Eagles, coached by Rich Brooks, topped Taneytown No. 2, 4-2, in Sunday's championship game.

* 12-and-under girls -- The Taneytown White Lightning, which won the 12-under division with a 13-1 regular-season mark, swept four games to win the tournament championship.

In an all-Taneytown showdown, the Lightning topped the Taneytown Sharks, 24-19, in Sunday's title game.

It broke a 2-2 tie with eight second-inning runs, added seven in the third and never was threatened.

Krista Corum, whose father, Dave, coaches the Lightning, hit a grand slam in the second inning, and Susie Miller ended it with a two-run shot.

Corum was 4-for-4 in the game with eight RBI, and Miller was 2-for-4 with four runs driven in.

The White Lightning earlier had won the final winners' bracket game, topping the Silver Run Bullets, 18-10.

The Bullets came back from a 10-2 deficit to tie the game 10-10 with a six-run fourth inning.

But the Lightning scored four in the bottom of the inning and three more in the fifth to pull away.

Krista Corum went 3-for-4, scoring three runs and driving in six, and sister Cari was 3-for-4 with three runs scored.

Miller was 3-for-4 with six RBI, and Mickey Kleinsorg went 3-for-4 and scored four runs.

The Taneytown Sharks, beaten by the Lightning early in the tournament and knocked into the losers' bracket, exited by topping the Silver Run Bullets, 26-19.

In a wild game that saw each team score in each inning, the Sharks pulled to a 9-4 first-inning lead and prevailed despite repeated comebacks by the Bullets.

Autumn Walter was 3-for-4 for the Bullets with two triples, a two-run homer and two runs scored.

Abby Woodruff supported with a 3-for-4 performance that included a home run, and Casey Henry drove in four runs, three with a bases-loaded triple.

Strine went 5-for-7 for the Sharks. Jessica Broderick went 3-for-5 with a home run.

Union Bridge was forced into a deciding game in the 14-under bracket when Taneytown No. 2 emerged from the losers' bracket to prevail, 9-8.

Taneytown rallied with two runs to win in its final at-bat. Erin Ness singled home the tying run, and Ayrika Frock singled home the game-winner.

In the top of the inning, the Eagles' Melissa Boone tripled home two runs to tie and then scored to put her team ahead 8-7.

In the low-scoring finale against Union Bridge, Jenny Dixon's two-run single gave Taneytown No. 2 a 2-0 lead that held until the fifth.

Then, the Eagles scored four times, with Amanda Kerr breaking a 2-2 tie with a two-run single.

Pitcher Amy Brooks, who yielded only six hits in the game, held Taneytown in check the rest of the way.
