Flames win tournament
The Newton Flames took the Lincoln County Parks & Rec Women’s Softball 2012 Fall League tournament championship this past weekend. Teams in the nine-team league played their games on Sundays at East Lincoln Park in Denver. The regular season champion and the No. 1 seed, Chaos, got knocked out early. The Flames went undefeated in the tournament and defeated four opponents. Aletheia, which lost their first game of the tournament and got put in the loser’s bracket early, battled back and faced the undefeated Flames in the championship.
