Yokomo have won the pre-season grand final of the Port Moresby Men’s Softball Association (POMSA), beating PNG Power 6-5 this afternoon at the Bisini Grounds.

Yokomo led comfortably for most of the match but were given a scare in the last inning when the Power boys snuck in 4 quick runs.

But Yokomo’s pitcher, Clifford Kouse, guided his side home to ensure the win.

In the preliminary finals in the morning, PNG Power edged out United Brothers 2-1 while Yokomo beat Defence 8-6.

In the third and fourth playoff, Defence defeated United Brothers 7-3.
