KAYSVILLE -- Rain dashed Jake's Radiator's chances of winning the top division in the Kaysville Men's softball tournament on Monday night. While it was storming during the 8:30 p.m. start at Barnes Park, that wasn't the problem for Jake's. It was the continuous flow of softballs pounded by Quick Cash falling over the fence that would prove their downfall. The boys from Quick Cash put the finishing touches on an undefeated season with the 19-9 victory in the title game. Quick Cash ripped through the most talented softball league in the county, and were not seriously challenged by any other team in the league besides Jake's.
The win marked the seventh championship that Quick Cash has won in the most competitive evening in Bountiful over the past decade, but this is their first title in the Kaysville league.
Over the years it has typically been a two-horse race between Quick Cash and Jake's, and this year Quick Cash had their number, beating them three times.
The main reason was because of their relentless offensive attack. Teams typically get uptight in the batters box when facing Quick Cash, because they know they have to put up 4-5 innings to have a chance at beating the best team in the county.
That plays into the loosey goosey ways of Quick Cash. With thumpers throughout the lineup there is no pressure on any one player to come up with the big hit.
On Monday night that hitter was Mike Crawley. With the game tied at seven, Crawley yanked a pitch over the fence in right field for a 3-run home run. It was Crawley's first of the year.
Quick Cash never looked back as Craig Smith, Shane Lofgren, Adam Kite, Brad Worthen, Mike Madsen and Travis Holbrook came alive to run off nine more runs.
"We always end up getting it done," said Worthen.
Rain or shine, one thing's for sure, Quick Cash will hit.
