The Abaco Softball Association served up a double header on July 18-19 at the Murphy Town Ball Field for excited fans.
Leading off were the DNR Sluggers versus the Simple Solution Sharks. The Sharks left DNR in the dust with a seven-run lead beating them 12 to 5.
Next, the Hope Town Wreckers faced the Creter’s Bulldogs in the featured game of the night, but did not fare well. Giving them no chance to score any runs, the Bulldogs demolished the Wreckers. The Bulldogs accumulated eight runs; the Wreckers: zero runs.
On July 19, Abaco Groceries Diamond Dollz dished out double trouble for the Golden Harvest Major Pain who put up a good fight. In the end, though, the Dollz scored 20 runs, while Major Pain scored 10.
The following weekend (July 25), it was a rematch between the Dollz and Major Pain, but the Dollz were merciless. They beat Major Pain: 14 to 5.
Finally, DNR and the Bulldogs went up against each other. DNR gave the Bulldogs a run for their money in the first inning, but consecutive innings showed a downhill performance on their part. The game was interrupted when paramedics were called for one of the Bulldogs players, so DNR and Bulldogs were not able to finish their game, which stood at 21 runs for the Bulldogs, and three runs for DNR.
According to one fan though – the score had been “plenty to ‘lil bit” giving the Bulldogs the upperhand and an undisputed win had the game been completed.
