Semi-final game, girls down by one bottom of sixth, stepping up to the plate eager for the win, came up with the clutch hits they needed to place them into the championship game. Up by 4 early on in the championship the girls seemed to be dialed in, their opponents answered back by tying it up in the third. In Mizuno fashion the girls answered back adding on two more runs in the fourth and then holding their opponents for the next four innings to clinch the win. Way to go girls/coaches.
