The APL Softball League has officially reached it’s playoffs after finally getting back on track this weekend. Due to two straight rain-out weekends, the anticipated match up between the leagues top two teams in Southern and Juice went down Saturday afternoon.
Southern would benefit from a hot start which featured two home runs in the first two innings behind Jasmine Balajadia and Tamisha Fejeran to surmount a 15-3 lead. Juice battled back to make it a game, but the large lead proved too much to overcome with Southern winning on an offensive heavy 19-17 game.
ADZTech took on the Wildfire in the first playoff game in Sunday evening with ADZTech winning large 16-3.
