Phoenixville's Bri Seville struck-out six while allowing three runs on eight hits.

The game was relatively quiet until Phoenixville's Rachel Linneman got Phoenixville on the board with a run on a hit by Jess Pierce.

Seville kept Octorara mostly to ground balls and pop-ups until midway through the top of the fifth-inning, when Octorara's Lauren Michalski got on base and Kim Stefanosky moved Michalski up to second on a sacrifice bunt. Pitcher Holly Thomas hit a weak ball that trickled its way into left field, allowing Michalski to score and tie the game.

With Thomas at third, Octorara's Meredith Benson singled to drive in Thomas to put Octorara ahead 2-1. Octorara added an insurance run in the seventh inning on a double by Benson.

"I expected a low-scoring game," said Phoenixville's head coach Joe Bogus.

The game was bittersweet for Seville, the lone senior on the team. Seville pitched every inning of every game for the Phantoms except for two innings.

"She's an outstanding young lady," said Bogus. "Her pitching kept us in the games. The idea of being the only senior is special. As the captain, for her to get everyone on the same page is spectacular."

The team has next year to look forward to. Every player is back except for Seville. Junior short stop Jenny Moore, a three-year starter, will step in as captain and left-fielder Kim March will fill-in as pitcher.

"The girl's shouldn't hang their heads," said Bogus. "Our girl's did a nice job for our community and school. Once all the dust settles and we reflect on the season, we can start thinking about next season. Hopefully this experience will help next year."
