Enough Said beat the Armed Forces team 24-6 in the championship game. Crissy Hixon, Tonja Russell, Ruby Nugent, Tracey Bougare of Enough Said were all 4-4. Bougare added a HR and 7 RBIs. Throughout the four games Enough Said played in the Women’s Open Division, the team from Tallahassee, Fla., outscored opponents 84-18. Twenty-four of the runs came in the 24-6 Championship Game, which turned out to be unbeaten Enough Said’s second pounding of the United States Armed Forces. “We appreciate the Armed Forces,” Enough Said Coach Ian Houston said. “They are a good softball team. We appreciate what they do for our country in terms of protecting our walls so no matter what the story is and what the outcome of the game is, we always hold them in our hearts and keep them in our prayers because they’re taking care of us.” Enough Said also beat Armed Forces 13-4 earlier Saturday afternoon to advance to the final. On Friday, Enough Said topped Ft. Hood Ballers (Killeen, Texas) 28-1 in three innings and Iowa Aces (Urbandale, Iowa) 19-6 in five innings. Armed Forces was within a few runs of the lead in the Championship Game until the fourth, an inning that saw Enough Said score 17 runs with a three run home run, a two run home run, an RBI single, a three run home run, an error, a two-RBI double, an RBI single, a three-run home run and another RBI single. The Armed Forces scored three runs, on a sacrifice fly and a two RBI single, but it was not enough to top Enough Said. Home Run Champions are Sirene Johnson and Misty Smith, who each hit .800 (12-for-15) in the tournament. Three players tied for the honor of Women’s Open Batting Champions: Christan Dowling (Enough Said), Sabra Gamel (Armed Forces) and Cara Coughenour (Iowa Aces).
