Firecrackers Maryland recently captured the 2019 18U Open USA Maryland-DC-Delaware State Championship and earned their berth to the 2020 USA National Championships. They overcame an early loss to defeat the national powerhouse Gold Coast Hurricanes, in what Coach Richardson called a “total team effort.”


He praised the team for being hard-working, fun, and for pulling for each other.

“They compete and don’t complain. They have the good kind of attitude.” A tip of the hat to Coach Troy for the fact that every player contributed in the championship game, which we all know doesn’t always happen. He said aggressive play with diving catches made this team really fun to watch, and so now we definitely will be looking forward to the noise Firecrackers MD will be making this coming year.


Great job and congratulations!
