It was Sunday afternoon and Highlands had come to Red Arrow Camp to play a midget's softball game.
This game is always a fun game to watch because we have some really skilled players on the midgets team. It's always a joy to see how the game plays out.
Highlands was equally skilled with also very good hitters and players so we were in for quite a game.
First hitter was Hans, on top of the order. It's a nice easy pitch, he slams it out to left field past all outfielders and gets three bases.
Next was Hudson up to bat and he got to first base but Hans hesitated, all of a sudden it was zero outs, man on first and third. Wyatt Bhuler gets a really nice hit straight through shortstop and third, right to the outfield, really good hit, that got him an RBI (Hans scored on that one).
Along with many errors on Highlands we ended the first inning happy about our one run with adrenaline pumping throughout Red Arrow. Highlands was then up to bat and we shut them down one, two three outs with Steven O'Connor pitching and we where on very high spirits.
No one scored on the fifth and sixth inning, bringing us to the top of seventh.
Really good defense in the seventh inning, no runs thanks to a great double play from the defense and a lightning quick reaction by Hans who caught a line drive that was heading straight out to dangerous territory.
When offense came around Dawson went out to bat and hit a hard grounder but good defense on Highland's part got him out at first.
With one out Hans is up to bat and hits a double, getting to him second base. Hudson gets on base and Morgan followed with a high ball down centre field, but a good catch from the left centre player from Highlands brought us to the second out. With Nate on base, Tyler walked to first so we had a tied game with bases loaded.
Crowd goes wild and with that we won one of the most intense and exciting softball games Red Arrow has ever seen.
