JV Systems vs. Clark Insurance
JV Systems defeated Clark Insurance 13-12 to earn a spot in the Dogtag championship. The lead changed hands three times and was tied at seven and at 10.
The game was a little late getting started because the pitching machine would not work. Therefore, the coaches had to pitch in this age group tournament while the sun beamed down hot after a rainy morning.
In bottom of the fifth, the game was tied at 10. Clark added two runs in the sixth on runs by Liza Clark and Sydney Ford. Both singled to get on base.
JV Systems answered with runs by Abby White, Wolfe and Morgan Joyner. White and Joyner singled while Wolfe doubled to get on base.
