NILES - They only needed to win one of two games Tuesday afternoon to claim the bragging rights of Confernce Champions and the Brandywine softball team did just that.
Cassopolis didn't let the Bobcats get away with two easy wins, but a win is a win and the damage was done.
Brandywine took the 3-1 first game win and the 4-0 win in the nightcap.
The Rangers started the day off by taking an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning.
Brandywine didn't pull in any runs until the bottom of the fourth when it was able to score three runs and claim the win.
Kelli Zache was the winning pitcher against Cass's Randi Hoffman. Zache had eight strike outs and allowed three hits.
Top hitters for the Bobcats were Connie Brant with two singles
Cassopolis got hits from Ashley Solloway who had a triple and Nelson and Jealyn Foston each had a single.
The Bobcats had a little more comfortable 4-0 win in the second game scoring all four runs in the bottom of the fifth.
Zache again was the winning pitcher against Symone Pompey. Zache had six strike outs and allowed five hits in game two.
Top hitters for Brandywine were Angela Newman with a double and Kendra Zache with three singles.
