Mudville Pinnacle Captures Rush Invitational by Knocking off Host Team in Finals
The very definition to ‘rush’ is to move forward, progress, or act with haste, or eagerness, or without preparation. This was far from the truth at the 2018 Rush Invitational on June 22nd – 24th, as Mudville Pinnacle (4-0-1, 24-8-1) charged and attacked the competition continuously at this 4GG event held at Arch Bishop Murphy High School in Everett.
The Nine ran away with the championship against the host 19U team, Rush Collegiate Black, 8-2. With exception of a very competitive T 5-5 pool game against the eventual finalists, Mudville entered Playoff Sunday as the #1 Seed Overall. Muddies executed with outstanding pitching, near flawless defensive and timely offense throughout the weekend, outscoring their opponents, 28-7.
