USA Lawn scored five runs in the first inning, answered Millstream Area Credit Union’s six-run barrage in the second with a four-run rally of its own, and held on to post a 12-8 win in the championship game of the Findlay Young Miss Softball Junior League tournament on Sunday.

Led by Sherri Yambor and Samantha Ricard, USA Lawn averaged almost 19 runs a game in sweeping three games on its way to the tournament title. Ricard hit a home run in all three games. Yambor had three doubles, two triples and a home run in the three games and drove in 11 runs.

Yambor doubled, tripled, homered and drove in four runs in Sunday’s championship game. Ricard added a home run and a double, while Alysiah Swain tripled in two runs and Taylor Beckley doubled in two more for USA Lawn.

Mikka Sanchez tripled in a run, while Sierra Williams drove in three runs and Tapanga Borkosky knocked in two each for Millstream Area Credit Union. MACU was beaten 15-3 by K of C in its tournament opener but won three straight games, including two in its final at-bat, to reach Sunday’s final.
