How Sweet It Is

Wagener Salley High defeated Ridge Spring Monetta 9-8 despite some questionable umpiring, placing them 2nd in the region going into the tournament on Thursday night. Marj knocked home Brielle at the bottom of the 7th to tie the score, putting us into overtime with a Texas Shootout. Brielle, as catcher, faked a throw to second, enticing the third base runner to steal home where she found Brielle, tagging her out with the softball. You should have seen Jackie's smile.

Kristin was hot on the pitcher's mound, I think she did even better than her usual awesome self. She also hit a homerun that brought in both Marj and Brielle.
All the ladies played great, I wish I had the stats. Marj twisted her ankle on third and limped off the field near the end of the game. We iced it down the whole way home, knowing it will be worth the suffering if she gets some of Ms. Christie's homemade cookies out of the deal.
