18B---July 24, 2003 The Cuba Free Press Cuba Vet Clinic sponsors local softball to By Rhonda Koppelmann If you were at the Cuba Sports Complex on Saturday, July 12, your morning was filled with an exciting show of local athletic talent as the Cuba Veterinary Clinic spon- sored their First Annual Girls Softball Tournament for girls eight, nine, and ten years of age. The tournament included teams from Steelville and Cuba, and was a great way for these young ladies to show off the skills they had acquired throughout the softball season. And that is exactly what they did! The girls displayed some of their best offensive and defensive plays of the season. The day began with Cuba's Golden Mariners squaring off against Steelville's Miles & Sons Towing. The Golden Mariners pulled out a narrow victory, sending Miles & Sons to face Bowness Pottery, who had previously fallen to Bob Perkins Realty. The Golden Mariners didn't fare so well when they went up against Bob Perkins Realty, and they were forced to replay Miles & Sons for a spot in the champi- onship game. This time, Miles & Sons were victorious, and the Golden Mariners were bumped from tournament play. The championship round threw the crowd for a great surprise. Miles & Sons (who had played three consecutive games) took the win by a nar- row margin. However, this led to an unusual problem. Each team (Miles & Sons and Bob Perkins Realty) had exactly the same record (two wins, one loss). A final playoff had to be played. Inning by inning, the out- come of the game appeared to change, but in the end Bob Perkins Realty held strong to claim first place in the tourna- ment. Congratulations to Bob Perkins Realty and to all the teams who participated. Each played well and displayed a great show of sportsmanship throughout the softball tour- nament.
