KERSEY - The Elk County Catholic Lady Crusader softball team captured the District 9 Class A championship by defeating the Brockway Lady Rovers by a 4-0 score Thursday afternoon at the Fox Township Community Park in Kersey.
The Lady Crusaders used a two-run home run by Lyndsey Trumbull in the second inning and a two-run double by Michelle Imbrogno in the sixth inning to account for their four runs.
After pulling off a big win Wednesday to knock off an undefeated Johnsonburg squad and advance to the D9 Class A baseball final, the Elk County Catholic Crusaders came out flat on Thursday evening at Berwind Park. The ECC squad got behind early, struggled with their offense, and were shut out 7-0 by a very good Coudersport team, which entered the tournament as the sixth seed.
