Florida Team Captures National Softball Title in Las Vegas

Maddie O’Brien’s two-run double keyed a four-run fifth inning Sunday as the Tampa (Fla.) Mustangs defeated the Elyria (Ohio) Sun Dogs 7-5 to capture the ASA/USA Class A 18-and-under national softball tournament at Majestic Park in Las Vegas. 

The Mustangs, whose roster includes Las Vegan Amanda Montalto, a Palo Verde High School graduate, were the only squad in the 140-team field not to lose a game in bracket play. 

Elyria lost its opening bracket-play game before rattling off 12 straight victories- including four each on Friday and Saturday- to reach the final game.
