In Stratford’s first game against Hanahan they lost 3-1. Hanahan has always been a good team. We have lost to them before. They have a lot of great players. So do we though. Sometimes it takes us a little while to get going.
In our second game against the Hilton Head Island, Seahawks, we won 15-0. They seemed to be a fairly young team. They made several errors in the outfield and the infield, and, their pitcher seemed a little inexperienced.
On day 2 we stayed alive through 2 games; one against Thomas Heyward high school. We beat them 9-1. An hour later we played Edisto HS. I am guessing they are from Edisto Beach. We won that game 5-1.
Later we were to face the winner between Summerville high school and Fort Dorchester. Surprisingly, Dorchester sent Summerville packing, winning by one, 7-6.
So we were playing Dorchester for the championship. We had them beat until we made some significant errors which ended up costing us the game. The final score was 6-4.
All and all we played okay. I don’t think the girls were so far advance at this time last year. I think they are ready to play and prove they can be a championship team this year as well.
