"It's on to the PIAA playoffs for the undefeated Brashear softball team.
The Bulls used a late offensive onslaught Wednesday to gain an 8-3 victory against Allderdice in the final City League championship game.
It is the fourth consecutive City League title for the Bulls (18-0) and their fifth in sixth years.
The Dragons (11-8) got on the scoreboard first, taking advantage of some uncharacteristic inconsistency from Brashear ace Kaylee Girdwood (15-0) to take a 2-0 lead in the second inning at McGibbney Field in Brookline.
Girdwood, a senior, admitted she was battling nerves. Her early woes were punctuated by an RBI double down the right-field line by Allderdice sophomore pitcher Samantha McKown"
