Gutsy ACT upset!
We had our first game in the Eureka City softball playoffs. We had to play the first place team in the division ahead of us which is 10-4 Blue Lake Casino. I think we are the lowest seeded team in the top division tournament. Joey and Barry Scarpillino, Jason Francis, Jason Makie and Neal Barsante all homered for Blue Lake. We had...O. But we prevailed in a huge upset 19-17. Our defense held on when they needed to and the whole lineup came through. Mark Bateson, Aaron Schmidt and Ben Hickock had huge contributions. That is why I love softball, you just never know. 5 out of our 10 players on the field were over 40! If Bonds can do it, we can too!
