A pair of local teams won the annual “Firecracker” tournament this past weekend. The tournament was hosted by the Kenai Softball Association.
The top division in the tournament, the B Division, drew six teams — one from Kenai, one from the Matanuska-Susitna valleys and four from Anchorage.
Kenai’s The Back Door Lounge came out on top of the tournament with a 5-0 record.
Don’t let that perfect record fool you, though, Back Door had to work overtime to get the title. The dramatic championship game against the Braves from Mat-Su went three extra innings.
