NEW HAVEN, MO – Black Gold had a good weekend in between the raindrops June 25 and 26 at the Black Gold Classic. However, they ran into a juggernaut in the semifinals, losing to eventual champion Boonville Fastpitch, led by Terry Luster.

Boonville, a first time champion of the Classic, knocked off the Belleville Stallions, also making their first title game appearance, 10-1 in 5 innings.
