Saturday's loss to the Sellersville Belles gave the Sting a little inspiration to come out and play hard in the rematch, resulting in a 5-1 win for the Sting. Haleigh Williams held the Belles to six hits and only one run. The Sting bats came alive again in the semifinal game against Chaos for a 10-5 Sting victory.
The Lady Fireballs made it tot he finals by beating Boyertown Storm in a close contest to take on the Sting in the championship game. Sting pitcher Rachel
Boone did a spectacular job on the mound, while McCann kep0t the game even at 4-4 in the fourth, driving a solo home run off of the padded football upright well beyond the left field fence. In the fifth inning, Alexy hit a triple to drive in Meg Loughery and then pitch Haleigh Williams shut down the Fireball batters to give the Sting a 5-4 win.
