Cup Final Game MCVBBC v. Lightfoot Club of Chattanooga
The Downstream Cup Final game featured the two ball clubs from Chattanooga, who were both victorious in early day action. Lightfoot jumped out to an early 3-0 lead and the rest of the game would be a chess match between both clubs. Each ace was precious and hard fought. By the third frame, the score was tied and both teams would swap the lead numerous times. At the end of 9 innings the match was all square at 6 after Bandit scored an ace in a close play at the dish. It was the bottom of the 10th inning that saw Lightfoot score the game winning run after Mac scored from first on a great right field strike by H I. This was the first win by the Lightfoot Club over MC and it came at an opportune time for them because it yielded the coveted Downstream Cup.
At the dish for MC, Sweet Feet and Red Bird both went 3-3. Edmo and Bandit anchored the infield, while Taco, Sweet Feet and Britches all made great plays in the garden.
MC would like to extend a big huzzah to their Chattanooga brothers for their well deserved victory.
