The Del Mar Powerhouse 9U Boys were on fire recently, dominating the competition in the XDS MLK Weekend Classic in Lakeside. Their 3-1 record from pool play earned them the #2 seed going into Monday’s elimination round of four teams. In the semi finals, Powerhouse’s stellar defense and hot bats beat the #3 seed 12-4 which placed them in the championship game facing the undefeated #1 seed.  The championship game was a back and forth battle going into the top of the 4th inning when the Powerhouse boys took over, scoring 13 runs to give them a commanding lead and earn their second tournament championship this season. It was an incredible weekend of hard-fought baseball and an absolute team effort on both sides of the ball. The offense scored 82 runs on its way to the Championship.  The boys battled through ups and downs and stuck together as a team to achieve success.
