The #3 Martin Methodist Softball team took the lead on three different occasions, but ultimately dropped a 5-4, 12-inning contest to #1 seed University of Mobile Sunday afternoon at the 2019 SSAC Softball Championship at Wilson-Morgan Park.
After a full day of play Thursday and Friday, inclement weather Saturday forced the teams to play the elimination bracket final Sunday morning.
The loss ended a valiant tournament run for the RedHawks, who played five games in four days, winning two ballgames Friday to stay alive in the tournament.
RedHawk freshman catcher Shelby Clifton was named to the league's All-Tournament team.
Top-seed Mobile would eventually defeat #7 seed Blue Mountain twice in the Championship round to win the conference title.
