SCW Hot Flashes 10 SCG Diamonds 9
Our season opener was a good game against a very competitive Sun City West team. We were able to stay with them most of the game but not scoring in the final two innings did not help our cause. Everyone had at least 1 hit in their 3 at bats except for Kathy Boland, Arlene Weslowsky, and Yvonne Becker with two hits each. Lisa Pelletier had some great defensive plays to accompany her 3 hits and 3 RBIs. Kandi Patrick did a fine job pitching and batting (3 for 3) including the only triple for our team. Extra base hit honors also go to Arlene who smacked 2 doubles resulting in 2 runs scoring. Yvonne had an RBI and Becky Holliday drove in 2 more runs. We played good defense, including a great throw from Becky to catcher Judy Muller, which stopped the Hot Flashes' run from scoring. Speaking of flashes, thank you Lisa, Kathy, and Vikki Hanson for pinch running. Annie Lowe had her debut on the pitching mound and will continue to practice. It was a good experience for her, but at the same time she encourages others to think about sharing the position. Welcome to the team Kat Melton, Laura Johnson, and Marjo McDougal. So nice to have you join our gang! Special thanks to Coral Estes for coaching third base and to our softball friends; Buck, Norm, Mark, Roger, Mike, Marilyn, and Dave for their efforts and support of the women's team at Sun City Grand. Appreciation also to all of our fans in the stands! Next game is scheduled at SCW on December 14 at 2:30 pm. Practice will be on Friday Dec 13 @ noon. Please mark your calendars!!
