NM Finals 2011

The Oslo Pretenders Rascals showed no mercy against the ØHIL Royals in the Norwegian Championship this past weekend and beat them twice: 13-3 and 23-3 to bring home the second title to the Pretenders in a week. With solid pitching from their ace Ultra-Leif and also by the smooth K.A.Z it never became as nerve-racking as it could've been. But just as much credit should go to the outstanding offense who produced 27 hits in these two games to make sure the Pretenders managed to win yet another double - their #13 in total.

The Oslo Pretenders participated in Finkstonball, Attnang-Puchheim in Austria and played 4 games with the record of 2-2. This gave them a 7th place out of 12 teams.
