There were threats of thunderstorms in the forecast however the HW Current Liabilities ended up with a beautiful evening to face their rival opponents, the Deloitte Dragons, in their first playoff game of the softball season at the RA Centre.
The first inning got the team off to a good start, shutting out Deloitte and gaining five runs right off the bat (pun intended). The next two innings were a bit more slow, with Deloitte picking up a couple runs and HW putting up one more, our first home run from a female player all season. Two strong innings in the fourth and fifth allowed our team to increase its chances of victory, as Deloitte had only scored five so far. So the team put out a strong defensive front in the seventh (and final) inning, shutting out Deloitte once more, and winning with a final score of 15 – 6.
The team worked very well together and all players contributed both offensively and defensively in one of our best games of the season. Next Tuesday August 26th, 2015, the playoff run will continue when HW Current Liabilities face the Short Bus at 7:45pm for a place in the finals. Come out and watch us at the RA Centre.
