U.S. Army Legal Services Agency managed to maintain a narrow advantage over Fort Belvoir Community Hospital through six innings, to claim a scant, 7-6 victory in a late-season intramural softball matchup, June 25 at Graves Field.
The two evenly matched squads—both past Commander’s Cup champions—remained within striking distance of the winner’s circle throughout the defense-heavy showdown. But, a late-game RBI propelled USALSA across the plate to take a one-run lead, and a stellar effort in the field shut down the hospital’s comeback attempts to secure the win.
The single-elimination championship tournament is scheduled to begin today, starting at 6 p.m. at Graves Field.
