PhotobucketSoftball everywhere...

On Sunday, September 9, 2012, the Nemesis Elite teams returned to the fields.

Good to see 4 of the 7 Nemesis Elite teams return to the field this past weekend to start the fall 2012 game schedule.  Here is a summary of the weekend's action:

18u Gold
The 18u Gold squad participated in the Wicked/Firecrackers kick-off invitational in La Habra with games on Saturday and Sunday evening. (won 4 games and tied 1).

~A BIG thank you to the NE mgrs/coaches/players and parents that came out to support the 18u Gold squad on Saturday evening.~

Supported by the Nemesis leather and catchers Crystal and Leilani, the pitching combination of Janel, Koreen and Ky allowed a total of 3 earned runs in 5 games.  At the "dish" the Nemesis Greek Goddesses were strong with quality at-bats.  Leading the way offensively was Taylor putting together a string of 13 for 13 quality at-bats.  Kam's 230ft shot over center field vs Firecrackers Snyder and Bree's 2-run "go-ahead" double vs Firecrackers Araujo were the offensive highlights.  Defensively Cassie's diving stab over-the-middle at 2b to save 2 runs made the reel and if excellence is making difficult things look easy...then Nadia was very boring in left field making difficult plays look routine. 

Player of The Week: Although injured and unable to play, Joanna attended every team activity in support of her team.

18u Blue
The team hosted an 8-way friendly at Discovery (won 1 lost 2).

Game 1 vs Riptide Gold: Ellie Ponce was given the start and was very effective through 5 innings. She seemed to get stronger the more she threw.  Jessica Martinez did a great job behind the plate. The hitting was lead by Cara Hylland (2-2 ) 2 RBI's with a double over the center fielders head for a 3-1 lead. Bianca Espinoza who also went 2-2 and collected 2 RBI's, driving in Rocky Narzagaray who lead off the game with a triple. Two errors cost Nemesis in the 3rd with two outs that lead to 5 runs for Riptide that gave them a 7-5 victory.

Game 2 vs Athletics: Maren Walder was given the start, she had trouble in the first inning not hitting her spots and walked a couple of batters. She settled down after the first and did a better job getting through the 2nd & 3rd. Nemesis had trouble adjusting to the slower pitching and only accounted for one run. Rocky lead off with a walk stole second base and ended up scoring on a Bianca single. The main highlight was the  team play of Maren who laid down 2 sacrifice bunts. American Athletics 7-1

Game 3
vs Team Easton: Ellie was given the start again went all 6 innings gave up 2 runs on 4 hits and 3 KO's. Rocky lead off with a single, a Maren sac bunt and a Bianca single up the middle for a run. In the 3rd, with 2 outs Maren tripled and Sammie Saucedo double for next two Nemesis runs. Sammie drove in two more runs in the 5th. Cara (2-3) and Bianca (1-3) hit consistent through the day.
The parents did a great job preparing the fields and running the snack shack. Still getting to know each other. Charolette and Ileidis did a great job cleaning up the snack shack, and special thanks to Derek Wallace for helping with clean up.
