NW Physical Therapy - 15 CORE Institute - 18
"Northwest’s lone highlight on defense was Art Molina catching a routine fly-ball for an out. However, there was an abundance of defensive low lights for Northwest PT. Northwest had an allergic reaction to playing defense. Few balls were caught with only an occasional defensive out recorded throughout the game. It seemed as though Northwest was implementing a team strategy to make Core become exhausted from running around the bases. An exhausted Core team gave a glimmer of hope to Northwest as their defense lapsed in the last inning and allowed 7 runs. On offense Northwest was decent with 26 hits with 6 doubles. Northwest hitters: Larry Radant 4-4 (2 2B), Ed Hart 3-3, Jim Mathews 3-4 (2B), Bobby Dooling 3-4 (2 2B), Art Molina and Greg Church were both 3-4, Chuck Gibson 2-4 (2B), (Sub) Dale Schroeder 2-3, Joel Last 1-3, and Wayne Moxley 1-4.
After cruising for 4 innings leading 14 to 4 the ortho folks tried to give it away in the last 3. Hot hitters were Don Trenda going for 4 for 4 with a double, Sub Gary Armstrong was also 4 for 4 with a double and a home run.Sub Bruce Lowe was 3 for 3 with a double. Dan Sykes and sub Pete McDougal were both a near perfect 3 foir 4. Don Cole and Marty Jiminez chipped in with 2 hits each.
Dillon's - 12 Karen Olsen Realty - 11

Sully S and Jerry Eastham each had a hit.
"On a cool day at the ball park Dillons pulled ahead in the 6yh inning for the win. The offense was there but too many errors and misplays by the realtors. The team collected 22 hits, with Don Cleveland and Robert Blainey getting 4 hits each. Getting 3 hits each were Mike Kachurak (HR) and Laura Johnsons. Getting 2 hits each were Greg Martin, Barry Schwartz and Ray Hensley. Next Game: Dec. 9th 1:30 Visitors"

Mike Dakak went 2 for 2 and continues to lead the team in hitting. Guzik battled the sun to make a number of fine run-saving plays in Left Field. However, the team fell to a very strong Leo Linda squad.
"Leolinda Realty took on Backbone at the Field of Dreams on this beautiful Saturday. The Leolinda team scored in each of this run rule shortened contest. Backbone was held to single runs in 3 of the six innings played. Leolinda was able to push runs across in every inning today. Nice job by Tom Gibans pitching a great game.

Chipping in with a pair of hits each were Rick Pearson (2B, 2B) and newcomer to the team Vern Mclean.

Tom pitched a great game but I also need to mention that everyone previously mentioned gets a gold glove today including Paul Larson who maned one of our outfield positions.
