Cooper Paint captures its second straight A Division playoff crown with uncanny hitting against Klein and Sons Logging

By RICHARD A. ROSS

SWAN LAKE, NY - You can call Cooper Paint a dynasty now. They deserve that acclaim and other superlatives as well, following their football-like scoring in this year’s A Division playoffs that culminated with a 22-12 title-clinching win over Klein and Sons Logging on August 14.

The victory gave the ladies, sporting tie-dyed jerseys, back-to-back playoff crowns and capped off a banner year that witnessed their third consecutive capture of the regular-season title.

Five trophies out of a possible six in three years. Not too shabby.

That year finally arrived in 1955 when the Dodgers overcame the Yankees’ mystique to win its only championship in the Borough of Brooklyn, giving their adoring and loyal fans something they will always remember.
