High school softball: Central York defeats Elizabethtown 1-0
May 25, 2012 by Chris Dunn
I’ve only shot softball three times (including a doubleheader, so four games), and every time, Central York has won.
More significantly, each time I’ve covered their games, the Panthers have won by scoring a run in either the last inning in regulation or the last, pre-tiebreaker inning.
The first time:

And the third — last night’s:
