Things were not looking good for the U15 Cochrane Blazers softball team at a Calgary tournament after the first two days.

But they never gave up. The girls dug deep when it mattered the most and proudly came home with silver medals.

"We didn't really think that we would get very far but then Sunday we somehow pulled off a win and then moved forward, and we were in the finals," says Emily Bowman.

"We played in the rain and the wind and the cold and the sun and all the things that happened over the weekend, and we came home with a silver medal. It was really awesome."

They won their first two playoff games before losing in the final to a SBR Rockies team from Calgary.

The U15 Blazers are off to Edmonton for their second of three tournaments this season.
