In the final game of the 16u Twelve Fall World Series, in front of a crowd of more than 150 Twelve players and parents, the underdog Zambonis found a way to bring home the hardware.  The favored Cajun Gree Gree sent 6'4" hard throwing right hander Luken Baker to the mound to start the game. Baker put up three scoreless innings before reaching his pitch count.  The Zambonis started Bryan High school right hander Cameron Carver and Carver didn't disappoint, posting four shutout innings of his own.  Carver also helped his own cause with an RBI double in the bottom of the 4th to give the Zambonis a 1-0 lead.  Brandon Letendre followed Carver's double with another RBI double giving him five RBI's in three FWS games.  In the top of the 5th inning the Gree Gree pushed across two runs on an error and a controversial balk call on an attempt to steal home by MacGregor Hines.  With the score tied at 2-2 in the bottom of the 6th inning, Austin Munoz lead off with a bunt single.  Cody Staab followed with a two run home run to right field giving the Zambonis a 4-2 lead heading into the last inning. Brandon Letendre pitched a quick top of the 7th to pick up the save and preserve the victory for the Zambonis.

Brandon Letendre was named the 2012 16u Twelve Fall World Series.  Other players receiving MVP consideration were Cody Staab, Cameron Carver, and Collin Cameron.
Up next for the Zambonis is a 7 inning exhibition against the current Twelve coaching staff.  The Coaches vs. Players game will take place at 7pm at Southwood Valley on November 14th.
