Carolyn Morris of Funk Jewelry hurled a 1-0 shutout in the final championship game to defeat her former team, A-1 Queens for the NSC title. Morris was awarded the Outstanding Pitcher Award as she went 5-0 in the tournament, including three shutouts and only gave up two runs in the entire tournament. Morris beat her old friend and teammate Charlotte Armstrong of the A-1 Queens, who gave up only the only run of the game in the first inning on a Mildred Dixons single that scored Mearle Keagle from second.

Keagle had started off the game with an infield hit and stole second before scoring. She was the only runner to steal a base of Queens catcher and tournament MVP Lois Williams.

Williams had a brilliant tournament behind the plate and also delivered some big hits from her clean-up spot in the batting order.

Alma Wilson was the batting champ as she started off with a 2 for 3 effort in the first game, including a run scoring single and then later, a grand slam home run.
