Pony 14U:

Recap:

The 2014 PONY European Zone Champions from the Czech Academy continued their quest to the Championship Game on day three, beginning the day with a 12-6 victory over fellow Czech team Draci Brno and then a one-sided victory over Kaunas (LTU) 20-0. Another undefeated squad, Holandsko A (NED) had to pull off some heroics to meet the Czech Academy. After a 16-2 victory over Polsko A (POL), Holandsko A was pitted against Prague (CZE), who boasted a 4-1 tournament record, after they shut out the Austrian Academy 15-0 to start the day and defeated Holandsko B 11-8 in their second matchup of the day. Prague led 7-6 going into the final inning, but Sam Brouns led off the inning with a double for the Dutch and his hit was followed up by another double by Tyriq Kemp. On an 0-1 count, Danny Albinus crushed another double, scoring both runners and ending the game with an 8-7 win for Holandsko A. Czech Academy will face first-time PONY affiliate Holandsko A in the Championship Game tomorrow at 6 p.m. local time Prague, 12 p.m. ET/US.

Colt 16U:

Recap:

Like their counterparts in the Pony age division, it took two hard-fought victories for Holandsko A (NED) to advance to the Championship Game. Starting off their day against their fellow countrymen, Holandsko A shut out Holandsko B 6-0. Winning pitcher Nick Loos started off the day well on the mound, going four innings strong, while allowing just one hit and two walks, but striking out six. Jiorgeny Casimiri finished the game in relief and did not allow a hit or a run. In the final game of the day, Holandsko A knocked off the defending PONY European Zone Champions from the Czech Academy 6-3 to advance to the Championship Game. With the Czech Academy loss, it opened up the door for the Frenchmen from the Bordeaux Academy, who came on strong during day three after picking up two valuable wins on day two. The Bordeaux Academy (FRA) started off the day with a 7-2 win over the previously undefeated Austrian Academy (AUT) and then the Frenchmen picked up another huge 6-2 victory over previously undefeated Holandsko C (NED). Those two wins propelled the Bordeaux Academy into the Championship Game tomorrow versus Holandsko A (NED) at 5 p.m. This game features a rematch from Game #5 on Friday in which Holandsko A (NED) shut out the Bordeaux Academy (FRA) 7-0. The winner advances to the Colt World Series in Lafayette, Indiana this summer.
