The Windmills 10U Gill team completed a 6-1 weekend up in Huntley with a rousing comeback victory over the Huntley Red Raiders to avenge their only loss on the season and to win the tournament championship and qualify for NAFA Nationals.  Down 4 heading into the final inning the Windmills batted around and scored 9 runs to take a 16-11 lead over the previously unbeaten Red Raiders 10U.  Maddy Dinino pitched a scoreless inning to close it out.  Every single player in the lineup had timely hits or quality at bats while Michaela Power, Edie Carroll and Maddy Dinino battled a dangerous lineup to keep the game within reach.  

Along the way the Windmills beat the Orland Park A's, McHenry Elite, Elk Grove Heat and Stateline Fury.  This runs their record in the Fall to 20-1 going into the Fall League playoffs on Saturday 10/20.
