The B & B Mason Supply coed softball team is accustomed to winning.
Yet the champions from past seasons in the New Milford Parks & Recreation league had their hands full Nov. 18 in the playoff title game on the far field of the Pettibone School/Kimberly-Clark field complex.
B & B ultimately emerged on top, 4-3, but not without a tussle from Hilario's Towing during a championship game notable for its defensive excellence.
The victory polished off an overall 11-1 campaign for B & B, while Hilario's settled for an 8-4 ledger.
Hilaro's had outplayed regular-season runner-up Litchfield Hills Plumbing, 11-1, and B & B dispatched Dr. Turchiano/Sound Masonry, 19-9, in playoff semifinals.
Maxwell complemented his mound derring-do with two hits and a sacrifice fly. Teammate Brenda Bartram slapped two hits and scored twice.
Hollister sparked Hilario's sporadic attack with two doubles, a single and two runs scored.
In a consolation tournament for teams that didn't qualify for the playoffs, Closeoutkicks.com edged S & G in the final.
