ConVal girls win Division II title
Junior Courtney Fisher handled the pitching and senior shortstop Lauren Mackey led the offense as the Cougars of Peterborough won their first state softball championship in their first title game appearance.
ConVal finished at 17-3. Coe-Brown was also 17-3.
The Bears entered the top of the seventh down 5-0 and made things interesting. The game ended with Fisher collecting her 10th strikeout of the night.
Amanda Riley singled to right to score a pair and it was 5-2 with no outs. Fisher induced a liner to left and a comebacker to the mound for two outs.
Fisher got her final strikeout and a celebration in the pitcher's circle ensued.
The Cougars scored three runs in the first and added a pair in the second and put Coe-Brown into a huge hole.
The Bears loaded the bases with no outs in the first, but Fisher struck out the next two batters and got a line out to shortstop.
Coe-Brown's Shannon Burke and Donohue singled to lead off the sixth.
