Softball Chaos

Yesterday's deluge made for some interesting activity today. Conveniently, this resulted in Katie's suspended game being moved to Rand to be completed. I say "conveniently", because the suspended Lincolnwood vs. Lincolnwood game was moved to the other field at Rand so that they could play Julie's team immediately upon completion of their game. And this meant that we (and Uncle Jeff) had the chance to see both games.

Katie's team fell behind by a score of 9-5 going into the bottom of the fifth. And I called out to the girls on the bench, "Come on! You can score five runs any time! I've seen you do it."

And they did, to take a 10-9 lead. Then they held their opponents scoreless in the top of the sixth and that was the game.

The Lincolnwood vs. Lincolnwood game ended as a run was scored in the bottom of the sixth for a 2-1 win, which meant they could now turn around and play Julie's team.

The girls broke a 1-1 tie with a five spot and went on to win by a score of 9-1, tying their season high for runs scored. It was impressive. :)

So there will be more softball tomorrow for both Katie and Julie.

And this is good.
