The West Pines Diamond Dusters: 2006 SEASON

Thursday, March 9
Disappointing 3rd place finish at West Boca
Your Dusters traveled to West Boca this weekend to participate in the St Paddy's Day tournament.

Our first game was an early morning affair against our friendly rivals the Caloosa Park Lightning. The Dusters were on fire scoring 9 runs in a hit-a-thon. Final score Dusters 9 Lightning 5

Because our game was the first 14A game of the day we had to wait through 2 more seeding games before we found out who and when we would play. (Yes there was only one field for each division) Well we drew the Lightning again, game time 2:30.

This game saw Lexi throw a no hitter up until the 5th. Lexi kept the Lightning hitters off balance by mixing speeds and locations. The other girls did a great job to support their pitcher by putting 8 runs on the board with Jessy hitting a monster homer. Final Score Dusters 8 Lightning 2

Our next contest was a rematch of the Spring Splash championship game with the Caloosa Park Angels. Your Dusters pulled ahead 1-0 in the top of the 2nd.   This did not last long however as the Angels were able to put together 4 runs. A very disappointing game to say the least.

The Dusters are never content just to show up and play. These girls want to win. It is this author's opinion once the Dusters have all the girls back from other commitments and we start practicing again our losses will be few and far between.
