Wiegand Landscaping rallied to score three times in the bottom of the seventh to take the Town Co-Ed Softball Title over Highland Sewer & Drain 11-10.

The Landscapers played with poise as well, pushing across at least one run in every inning but the first.

Joey D’Andrea led Wiegand with three-for-three and drove in two runs. Mike Mohrin contributed three hits and two RBIs. Mary-Leigh Weidmann also wielded a hot bat with three clutch singles. Still, it was a true team effort for the champions as everyone in the line-up hit safely. Bobby Caldwell, Erica Fox, Maggie Wallace and Gia Gianchetta provided two hits apiece. John Byrnes, Frank Wiedman and Matt Wallace all picked up a base hit.
Will Micik and Victoria Leontios spearheaded the Highland attack. Will Micik was three-for-three, two runs scored and two runs batted in. Victoria Leontios also had three hits and scored a run.
