BREWER — Richmond High School held off a late rally by Deer Isle-Stonington to take a 14-12 victory in the Class D softball championship game Saturday afternoon.

The Bobcats still led 14-9 heading into the bottom of the seventh. Deer Isle had three runs on four hits in the inning before left field Morgan Rines caught a fly ball for the final out.

Deer Isle had 17 hits in the game, but committed six errors, leading to 12 unearned runs. Richmond committed only two errors.

Danica Hurley had three bunt singles for Richmond, and Ciarra Lancaster went 2 for 3 and drove in two runs.
