BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Heights Heat 8u defeated Bridgewater, 7-6, to take the Championship Title at the BH PAL Heights Heat Softball Program second annual playoff tournament on Sunday, May 22 at the Columbia Softball Complex in Berkeley Heights.

The Heights Heat 8U Blue girls took on New Providence White in their first round game and won to advance to the championship  versus a very tough team of girls from Bridgewater.

Determined to take the title after finishing second in their fall season and to avenge two losses earlier in the season to Bridgewater, the girls took a 3-1 lead after three innings. In the bottom of the third Bridgewater scored five to take a 6-3 lead. In the top of the 4th, the girls from the Heights battled back to tie the score 6-6. After a scoreless 5th inning on both sides the Heat 8u girls rallied to take a one run lead into the bottom of the 6th.
