In the Winner's Bracket 

Lions 3 Eagles 2

In one of the best played games of the year, The Lions eked out a 3-2 win over the very talented Eagles team. Tom Delaney’s great pitching and excellent defense highlighted the day. With the game tied at 2 to 2 in the top of the 5th inning, the Eagles had 2nd and 3rd with no outs when a sharp grounder to third and the runner at 3rd drifted just a little too far from the base. This resulted in a tag out leaving the inning still open with 2 men on.  However , we were able to get out of the inning with zero runs scored. In fact the Eagles were held off the board for the last five innings. Dale Cassidy made many excellent plays including one that bounced off Bill Howland. Hitting stars were Dale Cassidy, who went 2 for 2 including a double,Tom Delaney who also went 2 for 2 and Steve Belenko who went 2 for 3. Contributing with one hit were Bill Howland, Bob Gaines,  Judy Agasar and Ron Cohen (double).  But the most important play was Jim Stabene driving in the winning run with a force out. Wish the Phillies could do that. Excellent play by Norm Ostroff at first base too.

The Eagles had some chances but fell short offensively to a very good Lions team.  The Eagles entered the Loser’s Bracket with the 3-2 loss.   The Eagles couldn’t score in the last five innings while managing only twelve hits in the loss.

Kevin Culp pitched another gem and collected two hits.  Bill Kreiger and Bob Esterly also collected a couple of hits but it was not enough to overcome the Lions.  The Lions had Tom Delaney pitch very well and the Lions played excellent defense to edge out the Eagles.  It was a very tense but well-played game by both teams.

In the Loser's Bracket

Blue Jays 11 Comets 6

After the Comets scored 2 runs in the 4th and 5th innings the Blue Jays put up 5 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning.  The 5 runs broke a 6 to 6 deadlock and Jays held the Comets scoreless in both the 6th and 7th innings. Jack Donahue made an outstanding catch in left field (he even got a da da dum from Andy) and Lee Bullman made a key catch in right center with two outs and the bases loaded.  Overall the Jays defense was solid with the exception of some early sun induced problems.  The Jays offense was led by Jack Donahue (3 for 3, 2 runs, 2 doubles and 4 RBI's), Rich Dempsey was 3 for 3 with 2 RBI's, Craig Neiderpruem and Ken Mealey (2 runs) were both 2 for 2 with a walk.  Jim O'Brien (2 runs) and Jack McNulty (3 runs) were both 1 for 2 with a walk and a double (although Jack's double went a whole lot further than Jim's).  Lee Bullman, Augie Rosenblatt, Ron Decker and John Walsh chipped in with 1 hit.

The Blue Jay's score 3 unearned runs in the bottom of the first to take a 3 to 0 lead. The Comets scored 2 in the second while the Blue Jay's scored 3 again in the third inning to take a commanding lead 6 to 2.  The Comets scored 2 in the 4th and 5th innings to knot the score at 6 to 6.  The Blue Jay's came back in the fifth with a 5 spot to seal the game and the Comets went on to lose 11 to 6.  Offensively the Comets were led by Tom Boyce  who went 3 for 3 with 2 runs scored and an RBI.  Chipping in with 2 hits were Kenny Riess, Bob Silvester, Wally Wasylak, and Jim Cro.  Jerry Barsky, Wayne's Heaton, Jeff Blank, John Tovorak, and Charlie Whitaker each had 1 hit.  Many thanks to Jack Galloway for subbing and going 3 for 3 with 2 extra base hits and 2 RBI'S. AND A BIG THANKS TO  KENNY RIESS FOR ALL HIS HELP DURING THE SEASON. Thanks to all our players for a great year of softball and some good laffs!!!!!
