With a 5-1 win over the Isengard Raiders at Orthanc Stadium today, the Bywater Bounders wrapped up their 2nd title in team history.
The Bounders left little doubt who was the better team. Celebrating a banner year, “team” was the word of the day in the victorious clubhouse after the game.
“Hitting, pitching, fielding; those are all things you need to win, but most importantly you need a team, a team that works together toward the same collective goal,” said Bywater manager Girith of Rhun. “Our players felt that way all year, and they played that way. When one guy had an off day, 24 others stepped up their game and filled the void.”
A jovial mood filled the air as Bywater celebrated into the night. The city’s mayor said parade plans were underway and a “huge celebration” would be in order.
“I hope they have a big celebration,” Isengard manager Golmazh Headgobber said. “They deserved to win this series and they deserve to celebrate it.”
