Trojans end season at 25-12


The Pleasantville Trojan softball team lost a home playoff game to intra-county rival Pella Christian Wednesday night, thus ending an outstanding 25-12 season.

 Sowers went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases in the game. Pleasantville had only six hits in the game.

On the mound, DeJoode struck out seven, walked four and gave up five hits.
