On Sunday, October 7th the final softball marathon game concluded at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex. Taking the victory was Team RCGO over Quality Reef. Immediately after, the seasonal San Pedro Co-Ed Softball Tournament, organized by The San Pedro Town Council, began with the participation of six teams: San Pedro High School (SPHS), Beer League, Extreme, Rusties, Quality Reef and RCGO. In the upcoming weeks, these teams will do their best to stay on top of their game and win the championship.
Games started shortly after 10AM, with the pending marathon match between RCGO and Quality Reef. From the first minutes of the game, RCGO dominated the innings leaving Quality Reef with little opportunities to up their game.
