Great defensive plays were made by Mary Gomez, Alana Marzich and Serena Sammarone. Superb catching by McKenna Carey and Mallory Vaclav kept Canfield in lead. A combination of pitching by Jill Baker, Alana Marzich and Taylor Lampe left Elyria guessing at the plate. Canfield was managed by Kirk Baker and coached by Derick Fletcher, Pete Carey and Bill Lampe.
