Championship Game - Chantilly High School - June 16, 2004
Wow! Great finish for our 2004 Spring Softball Season. The Championship team featured the Pirates (photo) vs the Marlins (photo). As tradition dictates, we started off with the meeting at the plate, with Blue going over his strike zone.
We had some fabulous hits, a couple of triples and a double to make for some exciting softball. Folks, this game provided double plays, stealing bases (don't worry, we made sure they were put back on the field), strike-outs, the works!
The game started out with defense strong on both sides. The Pirates, head coach, Phil Smith, rallied in the 3rd and 6th innings. But the Marlins, head coach, Bill McGrath, kept battling back with aggressive baserunners. Excitement was in the air!
After the last out, the ladies showed great poise, and tired smiles.
The final score was Pirates 14 - Marlins 6.
The Marlins played some tough games, coming back up through the loosers bracket to play for the Championship Trophy. See for yourself, they look great with the 2nd Place Trophies.
Congradulations to the Pirates, taking first place, and the Marlins, with second. Great Game!
These Ladies are true Queens of the Diamond!
