During the 3rd game of the day and going into the 7th inning with two outs, our girls  rallied and came from behind to win again.  Game 4 wasnt looking good with 3 runs down, but once again in the 7th inning with 2 outs and Lexi  and Cambria on base, Jordan blasted the ball to right feild, followed by Michele, Kenya and Lauren our Cobra girls showed what big hearts they had and came from behind to win once again. Unfortunately, the 5th game of the day against Matoon Pride (in their 2nd game of the day) the Cobra girls gave all they had, but it just wasnt enough.  Our team  took home 5th place.  Special thanks to our aquatic engineer, Jay, for keeping the girls hydrated in the excessive heat. Thank you to coaches Joe, Rick and Michele for keeping the girls motivated  and for all you do during the season. Last, but not least, thank you to all the Cobra families , without whom this great season wouldnt be complete !!!!    DELAWARE COBRAS ROCK  !!!!
