Brown Eagles

Eagles, Stingerz POM softball men’s champs

For the B Grade division, Stingerz edged out Yokomo 6-5 to claim the title.

The main event between Brown Eagles and United Brothers was everything it was expected to be.

It was a seesawing affair with the lead changing several times, but the men from Matupit saved the best for last, taking back the lead in the final inning in stunning fashion to give the Eagles an 8-7 win in the A Grade final.

Gazelle victorious over Eagles

It was a scoreless first two innings with both sides unable to convert their chances to score into points.

Gazelle hit the lead at the top of third when former Eagles pitcher, Clement Okole snuck home to make it 1-0.

Gazelle added three more runs in the next inning from passed balls which saw Okole, David Mickey and Harry Matthew scored.

The boys from Matupit gave Gazelle a scare at their last turn of bat when an overthrow to first base allowed Daniel Pennie and Consie Lumaris to sprint home.
