The Fourth Showdown

Girls Softball Game

It was a cloudy overcast day at the EAB sports complex.  It was a great day for a softball game.  The other three games hadn't turned out the way the eagles wanted but they were confident going into this game.  The stadium was crowed and there was standing room only as the fans were ready for game four of this epic showdown between EAB and BIS. 

The eagles came out strong and scored 2 quick runs in the first inning.  The bulls were not going to be denied and scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 1st.  The girls came out focused on hitting and scored 3 more runs in the top of the 2nd.  With some great defense from the outfield they stopped the bulls and held them to 0 runs.  In the top of the 3rd the eagles bats were quiet as they could not score any runs.  EAB came out swinging and scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 3rd.  The eagles were up 5 to 4 going into the top of the 4th.  The pitching and fielding were too good and they didn't manage to score any runs. 

The bulls came out hitting and loaded the bases with no outs.  The batter came up to the plate facing Priscilla.  She starts her windup and throws the pitch.  She hits it high in the air, the outfielder is going back, going back, and she just misses the ball my an inch.  3 runs came into score and then they managed to score 3 more.  The eagles go into the top of the 5th with one last chance to tie the game.  They were down 10-5.

 Mwango comes up to the plate.  She stares down the pitcher.  The pitcher throws the ball.  Mwango swings its going high and far.  The girl goes back, back, back, and she cant make the catch.  It goes over her head.  Mwango is rounding 2nd with a full head of steam.  She is going for home.  She makes it into home base easily with a inside the park home run.  The crowd is going wild and giving her a standing ovation.  After that the girls emotions were drained and they couldn't score any more runs.  The final score ended with EAB 10- BIS 6.  It was an outstanding game with the fans never sitting down because of the excitement. 

Mwango went 4-4 with 3 RBI's.  She was the player of the game.
Pauline went 2-4
Abbey went 2-3
Anna went 1-2
Anna and Abbey were named the defensive players of the game.
The infield did a great job of working together and talking to eachother.
The outfield did an outstanding job of catching and not letting any balls get past them.

The girls hustled and did a great job of never giving up and keeping their heads in the game.  Stay tuned for the next sports report.
