    Championship Game : Snug Harbor and South Shore met for the second and deciding game in the championship round for the third consecutive year on Wednesday at Staten Island LL.

    And for the third straight year, Snug Harbor was victorious with a 2-0 win to complete the three-peat and capture the District 24 12-year-old All-Star softball tournament crown.

    "It was incredible to win the championship for the third year in a row," said Snug Harbor manager Steve Sandberg. "I couldn't have dreamed of a better scenario."

    Snug Harbor, who was used to being in the drivers seat the previous two years, forced the deciding game after a 3-2 win on Tuesday after dropping a 2-1 decision on Sunday.

    "To come out of the loser's bracket and win two in a row against a tough, tough team was incredible," said Sandberg.
