In the final, Horton was throwing a masterpiece, but the rematch with Stars was still scoreless through three. Lewis then got things started with a bunt hit, and Horton followed with a bunt moving her to second. January came through again, with a ground ball through the hole at short to score Lewis and give the Lightning a 1-0 lead, which held up until the sixth. The stout Churchville defense finally showed a small crack, and the Stars took advantage to tie the score. The Lightning did not take long to respond, though, as Lewis and Horton struck again. Lewis stroked a hard ground ball over the first base bag past a diving right fielder for a lead off triple. Horton then ripped a 1-0 pitch to deep left, scoring Lewis easily with the go ahead run. Three outs later, the Lightning celebrated a hard fought 2-1 victory over the Stars and the USSSA state title. The defense was stellar throughout, with Cat Kim, Lyttle, Smith, Hahn and Luzetsky adding one tough play after another to keep the game close. Additionally, Sara Fleischmann, Karlye Kolb, Olivia DuBois, Abby Hollen and Rhonda Mahaley are members of the 14U championship team.
