Softball season ends in disappointment, Flyers move into Finals

The first placed Therwil Flyers swept the Challengers in their best-of-three semi-final series, as the Flyers posted a 1-0 win in Game 2. The crowd saw a pitcher’s duel between Brittany Franklin and Brittany Howell, who both took control of the batters, as both teams exchanged zeros on the scoreboard till the bottom of the sixth inning. Unfortunately for the C’s Nina Wolfensberger was called safe on first base after hitting a foul ball and the Flyers managed to move her on to third base, before Melanie Wanner hit a RBI-single with two outs to score the deciding run. The C’s had one last chance in the top of the seventh frame, but Franklin retired the side in order.

The Challengers’ season ended in dispiriting fashion, as the C’s didn’t manage to score against the strong Flyers’ defense, despite playing a quality game. The Flyers will face the reigning champion Luzern Eagles in the finals, while the Challengers finish the season in fourth place.
