Countryside rallied for three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to defeat Dunedin 5-4 in the District 12 Junior/Senior Softball Tournament of Champions final Friday night at Clearwater Little League.
"It was a crazy game, to say the least," Countryside manager Joe Dattilo said. "Emotions were riding high, but the team really came together and played as one. That's what they have done all season."
Marisa Laramee and Alyssa Bache singled to lead off the bottom of the eighth before Paige Oxendine drove both home with a double to tie it. Kelli Underwood then knocked in Oxendine with a base hit for the winner.
Bache started the game and went seven innings, striking out 12. Brittany Dattilo worked the eighth and picked up the win.
Countryside's comeback capped a perfect 23-0 season. It reached the finals by beating East Lake 7-1 earlier in the day.
