Winning this game allowed us to capture the first annual Deckerville Softball Tournament. This was something nice to build upon. Amber Fischer pitched solidly, but then kind of lost her touch in the final inning. Tiredness and endurance will need to be worked upon going into the next season for her. A nice victory for the girls and a title is always nice to add.
