Coach Dennis and his 12u Gold team came out of the gate hot in their opening tournament going 2-0 in pool play while earning the #1 seed and a first round bye going into the playoff rounds. 

Dan Mariani blew away the Penfield Crimson Pride (also out of Rochester, NY) by going 5 innings with 10 strikeouts en route to a convincing 6-0 win to open the weekend.  In game 2 vs. Sports Zone Green, Jacob Benedict led the way with 3 hits to lead DP to a decisive 15-2 victory and clinching the #1 seed.

Coach Dennis team bowed out in the semi finals of the tournament in well played ball game against our other 12u Gold team led by Coach Melino. 12u Dennis held a 4-1 advantage heading into the 5th inning before 12u Melino took control on their way to an 8-5 victory.
