Karlie Bean drilled a walk-off homer to lead the Mattoon Cobras 16U past the Mattoon Pride 02, 1-0, and clinch first place in the Future Stars of Sports Tournament held in Terre Haute, Indiana, last weekend.
Bean rapped five hits across four games for the Cobras, who finished the softball event undefeated against both 16U and 18U teams. Bean also pitched six scoreless innings to earn her second win of the weekend.
The Cobras 16U had defeated the Pride squad 4-2 in its tourney opener, and then slipped past the Edgewood Blaze, 5-4, and the Mattoon Cobras Val, 3-2.
Zoe Mitchell collected four hits and drove in three runs across the four games while teammate Ivie Edwards had two hits and two RBIs.
