Coach Stephanie Duquette, Assistant Coach Kevin Wilson and the Somerville Tornadoes held off an awesome come from behind attempt by Coach Timothy Hawkins and the Somerville Lightning on Saturday, June 22 at Trum Field.
Reflective of the 7-5 final score, the game was well played with a strong finish by the Lightning with 2 runs in the top of the 6th inning. With the go-ahead run at the plate, two runners on base, 2 strikes on the batter, game ending ball was hit into a short-stop to first base third out.
Showing composure and great sportsmanship, the Somerville Lightning cheered on Tornadoes players as they were handed the championship trophy. It was a great day for softball, a great day for players and families, and a great day for Somerville.
Somerville Youth Softball had another great season of softball. The organization consisted of 27 Instructional Division Players grades 1, 2, and 3, three 12 and under teams and a single 15 and under team, Tsunami.
