ESSEX: The Comets were down by five runs Tuesday going into the seventh inning. They needed everything to go right in order to defeat the top-seeded Hornets of Essex- more than that, they needed to believe, according to Coach Bert Berthiaume.
Believe they did, the Comets stunned the Hornets, forcing a pitching change, and knocking in six runs by the time the Hornets could tally up three outs.
The Comets followed that up with stellar defense in the bottom of the seventh to round out the game, propelling them into the championship game against rival Missisquoi.
That game is scheduled to be played at Caselton University Saturday afternoon a 2 pm.
Also playing on Saturday will be Fairfax, the top seed in D3 Softball taking on White River Valley at 5:30 pm at Caselton.
