 The Caps faced off with Garner on cold wet Friday afternoon.  The Trojans had beat the Caps earlier in the week on a late HR and the Broughton boys were looking for a little payback. With a two run lead and two outs in the top the 7th inning the Caps had victory in their hands but only for a split second.  What would have been the 3rd out and the end of the game turned in favor of Garner on a controversial call by the home plate umpire.  The field umpire unable to see the obvious tag at first base a few steps in front of the bag asked the home plate umpire if he saw it, the home plate umpire who was watching the 2 runners come around 3rd, not the direction of first base made the safe signal.  This call turned the tide of the game as the Trojans scored two additional runs and won the game 7-5.  This bitter defeat did not sour our men as they held their heads high knowing soon they will soon taste victory. 

Freshman Dominic Ford showed moments of greatness both on offense and defense going 1-2 with a HR (2 RBIs) plus flashing the glove with diving stops at 2nd Base.  Jr. Joe Bialkowski continues his stellar play going 1-3 (2B 2RBIs).  The future of this team looks to be in good hands.  This is the best 0-3 team I have ever seen, but that is only one fans opinion.  Come see for yourself they play next Friday at Riverside HS 4:00pm
