FRENCHTOWN- It has been one memorable Memorial Day for two area high school softball teams. Florence won a snow delayed state title while Polson had its championship game moved from Anaconda to Frenchtown because of flooded fields.
Polson took on Belgrade for the Class A title in a game that got underway at about 4 p.m. The Pirates blew it open by scoring six times in the sixth inning to take an 8-2 lead and ended up winning the championship by a final of 8-3.
The Panthers, who had lost their opening game to Polson by giving up five runs in the seventh inning last Thursday, ended up with the second place trophy after the bad weather forced a two day delay in the matchup.
