Through the efforts of Erik the Indy team now known as Kickin Aces out played another outstanding team. Erik pitched 7 solid innings striking several batters out and only giving up nine runs, he also contributed 2 home runs.
Alicia earns player of the week for her outstanding defensive play. She made several stops at short that left her with bruises up and down her neck and arms, all in the name of victory. She also contributed with her bat with RBIs in several innings.
Hot enough for ya? That was the question of the day on Sunday at Northacres! The other question was who's gonna be Player of the Week?!?! Not really, but it makes for good reading! This week was especially tough to pick just one POTW since so many home-runs were hit that the ump nearly ran out of gameballs. But, in a game between Kickin Aces & DA Bad News Bears it was what happened on the bases that made the difference. Kevin LeMoine of Kickin Aces was swingin' the lumber (actually aluminum) well from the plate going 4-5 including a triple. But what gives him POTW honors is what he did with the leather, turning an incredible 3 Double Plays!!! Congrats to Kickin Aces on their 11-5 Victory and to Kevin LeMoine our Player of the Week!!!
In the final game of an otherwise hot Sunday of softball it was Kickin Aces vs. P.B.Army. This game was a nailbiter with Kickin Aces trailing the entire game, at one point trailing by 6 runs! It came down to the bottom of the final inning where Kickin Aces were last up. Getting 2 runners on base with timely hitting and smart at-bats it was their pitcher, Erik Hansen who stepped to the plate and absolutely smashed the ball out of the park for a walk-off game winning 3 run home run!!! Amazin win Kickin Aces and huge congrats to Erik Hansen our Player of the Week!!!
Bethany got POTG in half of the games on Sunday. In the 1st game of the day, she went 3-4 with 3 runs scored and made some great plays in right field. In the 2nd game, the batters didn't adjust and kept hitting the ball to right field where she made a couple of beautiful off balance catches to help PB Army go 2-0 on the day.
Going 5 for 6 with many key hits, Mike also held the powerful Immgrants in check on the mound. On a side note Brady Owen on the PB Army hit a MONSTER towering blast opposite field over the concrete wall and on to I-5 to tie the game in the top of the 7th only to have Rachel Han'ager come through with a walk of hit over the outfield into deep left.
