CHALLENGERS NEWSLETTER 26/2014
BLACK SATURDAY FOR CHALLENGERS
Der vergangene Samstag wird nicht in die Annalen der Challengers eingehen. Fünf Spiele, fünf Niederlagen hiess das brutale Verdikt.

Das NLA-Team unterlag den Flyers - und liegt in der Best-of-5 Halbfinalserie nun 1-2 zurück. Das NLB-Team kassierte die Saisonniederlagen zwei und drei - und schied im Halbfinal aus. Das 1.Liga-Team hatte seine Premiere im Heerenschürli - und blieb ohne Erfolg.

Da heisst es nun abhaken und nach vorne schauen. Das NLA-Team empfängt am Samstag die Flyers zu Game 4 und das 1.Liga-Team spielt am Sonntag im Heerenschürli.

Game Recap
NLB-TEAM'S SEASON ENDS IN DISAPPOINTMENT
Saturday September 20, 2014 - by Alex Gordon
The NLB-Team cruised through the qualification round and swept the Jona Bandits in the quarter-final series and won 16 out of 17 games so far. But the Challengers' season ended cold turkey on Saturday, September 20. The Sissach Frogs proved to be too strong for the C's, as they were swept in the best-of-three semi-final series by the Frogs. The Frogs perfectly played small ball and added the big hit, as they hit a grand-slam en route to a 7-0 win in Game 1. 
And the Frogs kept the Challengers' bats quiet in the second game too. The Frogs took a no-hitter into the fifth inning and held on for a 8-5 victory to clinch the final berth. The Challengers battled hard and had the tying run at the plate in the seventh, but couldn't avoid the loss, that ended the Challengers' season.
