It seemed fitting a championship hung in the balance the final time a softball fluttered in the dusky sky above the current configuration of Trego Field.
Perryville pitcher Emily Wolf wasn't sure if she could catch it or not.
"I saw it in the air and I was like, 'Oh, I've got to catch this ball'," Wolf said. "'If I catch this ball we're about to win' and I almost didn't catch it because I was shaking so bad, but ah, I caught it and it was the best feeling in the world. Oh my God!"
Wolf's grab of the popup between the circle and home plate sealed Perryville's 2-1 triumph over Rising Sun in the District 5 Senior Division softball tournament title game Thursday night.
