The world champion New Zealand men's softball team have won the Intercontinental Cup tournament in the Czech republic, beating Japan 5-1 in the final.
Japan went 1-nil up in the third inning but in the 5th, both Ben Enoka and Joel Evans struck for the Black Sox scoring home runs to make the 2-1.
In the bottom of the 6th, back to back homeruns by Capmbell Enoka and Reilly Makea made the score 5-1.
"It was great to win the tournament especially considering it was the first edition. We´ve been training for a couple of months now towards the campaign and we pulled through the innings and that's good," said Makea.
