TEAM Shenika conquered the 1st Talisay City Softball League after sneaking past Team H & B, 7-6, in the championship match at the East Visayan Academy Sports Field in Bulacao, Talisay City last Sunday.
The Lagtang, Talisay-based Shenika marched to the finals with a 19-7 triumph over Doc Salcedo in the semis.
H & B beat Maghaway, 14-4, in the semis before bowing to eventual champion Shenika.
Doc Salcedo, though, did not go empty-handed as it posted a 17-16 win over Maghaway to settle for third place.
The event, sponsored by Talisay City Councilor Antonio Bacaltos Jr., board member Raul Bacaltos and lawyer Alan Bacaltos, was organized to promote batted sports to the youth and grassroots level.
With the success of the first event, the organizers are planning to stage another softball competition in connection with the Talisay City Fiesta. (RSC)
