Olympia Haarlem wins Women's Softball European Cup Winners Cup

The Dutch Team Olympia Haarlem topped the host squad Saronno on the championship game of the Women’s Softball European Cup Winner Cup, 3-2, claiming the title.

Championship Game
In the Final Game of the Women’s Softball European Cup Winner Cup, hosting club Saronno took the lead against Olympia Haarlem in the third, when Brittany Abacherli sent one over the center field fence. The Italians double their advantage thanks to another solo-homer by their captain Giulia Longhi. On the top of the sixth, the Dutches reacted: first they tied the game and then they took the lead. Lisa Hop reached on a hit to second base, and Brenda Beers pushed her to second with a walk. Saronno pitcher Kelly Barnhill got substituted by Guevara Limonta but she could not stop the Dutches. First a single by the Oranges catcher Dinet Oosting and then a dropped sacrifice fly (defensive error) by Jessie Van Aalst allowed the 2-3. Olympia’s pitcher Alyson Spinas-Valainis closed the game obtaining the W and the Title for Olympia Haarlem.
