Sanctuary Island Electric sparks playoff berth with win
In the final night of regular season games, Sanctuary Island Electric lit up the night with a high-voltage comeback victory over Bailey’s Baggers in the last inning of the game. With the win, Sanctuary Electric clinched fourth place and the final playoff spot in the post-season tournament.
“We thought we had the game in the ‘bag,'” said Bailey’s player Jack Koc.
The final score was Electric 20, Bailey’s 19.
Another squeaky close game was the All Island Glass versus the first place Beachview Rec’N’Crew. The general consensus was that All Island Glass was going to get polished. But that wasn’t the case.
Overcoming an early 13 run deficit, All Island made a comeback just a few minutes too late. In the midst of the comeback, the game was called due to its time limit. Final score: Beachview 18, All Island Glass 17.
In the last game of the night, The Aztec Plumbing Warriors sent smoke signals up in the air, warning every team to watch out for their warpath next season. They picked apart their opponents, the second place Great White Grill, 25-10, in what was Great White’s biggest loss of the year.
Great White captain “Shoeless Joe” Ramsey said, “We were resting our starters so they will be fresh for the playoffs.”
Next Wednesday will be the post season tournament between the top four teams. The tournament is more than a simple test of skill and athleticism. It is also a test of endurance because winning teams play a doubleheader in a four-hour extravaganza. The tournament champions and runner-ups will get trophies of gargantuan proportions. But more importantly, bragging rights will be theirs for all eternity.
