Sailors Take Lead, Pirates Over Maroons, Blues Scoreless

The tenth set of games of the 2017 Port Stanley Senior Softball season were held Wednesday, July 5th in clear sunny skies, with temperatures rising over the day to 26 degrees Celsius and the wind from East South-East at 10 km/h.

In Game 1 Shedden took the early lead in the first with two runs, while the Sailors managed one. In the second the Sailors stole the lead with two runs, and added another in the third to lead by two. Shedden came back with one in the fourth, but was still down one. In the eighth the Sailors added another two to their lead, while Shedden added only one giving the win to the Sailors with a final score of Sailors 6 - Shedden 4.

In Game 2 the Maroons took the early lead in the first with two runs, while the Pirates managed one. In the fourth the Maroons pushed ahead by another two to lead by a score of 4-1. The Pirates got one run in fifth, and another run in sixth, while the Maroons managed three runs to still lead by a score 7-3. It looked like it was a sure win for the Maroons, but, its funny how things can change as the Pirates managed two runs in the seventh, and another two in the ninth to tie the game. In the tenth the Pirates picked up four to take the lead, while the Maroons managed only two which ended their winning streak, giving the win to the Pirates with a final score of Pirates 11 - Maroons 9.

In Game 3 Boxall finally managed to get on the scoreboard in the fifth with four big runs, another in the sixth, and seventh, and finally two more runs in the eighth to take the win with a final score of Boxall 8 - Blues 0. What happened to the Blues, well I think the best way to describe that game, was what I heard some of the players say after it was over! "That was embarrassing. How do I transfer to another team?"
