It's not how you start, it's how you finish.

The Langley Xtreme 2003 squirt B rep softball team proved that true in capturing the Lower Mainland Cup.

But the team caught fire, defeating the Chilliwack Mayhem in the quarter-finals, and then 15-14 over the top-ranked Surrey Storm in the semifinals.

That set up a showdown with the Cloverdale Fury for the gold medal and the Xtreme delivered with their second straight narrow victory, this time 12-11.
