Week 12 (February 6) highlights courtesy of Joe Mackey
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The weather was perfect for a great day of senior softball. With parity encompassing the ranks of the Dana Softball League this year, only 1.5 games separating first from worst. It was appropriate that the cellar dwelling Squirrels easily took down the once feared Bronx Bombers, in a 20 to 12 sleeper of a game. Then the current first place team Purple Haze flexed their muscle against the surprising high ranked Red Die Hards in a 37-13 squeaker of a game. The mid day game featured the much improved Gray Ghosts taking advantage of the aging Green Huts. Using all their extra talent acquired by Rule 5 mid-season drafts of All Stars Gray continues their clime from worst to near first defeating Green 26-18. While the afternoon session pitted the “where did they go?” X-men, in a crucial match to see if the once heralded X-Men could regain their X-lent form of early this season. Missing 4 of their first five draft choices, the X-Men showed the grit and gut it takes to be Champions, taking out the hapless Black Blitz 25-20.
Next week could decide who’s name is on the trophy when X-Men and Purple Haze collide to decide.
