...Welcome to South Boston Softball, sponsored by Jeff Cox and Golden Corral of South Boston, VA...

August 17  ...remainder of this season stats unavailable at this time due to computer problem.

August 10  ...disappointing NSA State
Golden Corral went to Richmond this weekend for the NSA Overall State but gave a weak effort.  After steamrolling through 2900 Club in five innings, GC let the game against VA Trophy/ Saunders slip away in the sixth inning.  Trophy is definitely a solid team.   They went through the bracket undefeated, only to get double-dipped by B&R Softball (congrats to B&R on a good tournament).  GC, then, looked sick against Kingsmen and were eliminated by them for the second time in as many State Tournaments.   hmmm...

August 3  GC rolls through Equalizer Tourney.
     Golden Corral Softball posted a 4-1 record this weekend to win a "warm-up" equalizer tournament in Roanoke, VA.  GC slammed Outlaws in four innings, 28-5, and then handled Sheetz by a 22-12 final to move into the undefeated game against Lumberjacks, who were grossly outmatched with The Corral rolling to a 20-1 win in five innings.  The tough Sheetz team made it back to challenge GC for first place and came out smoking to take the game by a score of 34-16.  This forced the "if" game, and this time Golden Corral was ready.  GC poured it on early and kept the sticks hot as they cruised to a 38-13, four-inning final.
     We will see if the bats stay hot enough in next weekend's NSA Overall State in Richmond.

July 27  The Corral goes 3 and out at VA Beach.
Golden Corral made the trip to VA Beach to play in the Eastern State Tournament this weekend and came up a little short on a couple of games to finish a disappointing 1-2.  GC beat high-seeded LE Balance in the opener, but then fell to CB Express by two runs and lost to the Kingsmen 22-23 in the bottom of the 7th.
     This team is more talented than it is showing so far this season.   The Corral hopes to get it straight in a couple of weeks at what seems to be shaping up as a very strong NSA State Championship.

July 13  What the Hell kinda bracket...?
Golden Corral managed to screw themselves into a hole in Burlington this weekend, but what a strange bracket it was.  After winning the first game, GC had to stay on the field to battle a tough Cedar Creek club, who came back to win it with two outs in the seventh.  Then The Corral had guessed it...stay on the field again.  No excuses.  We lost close games to good teams, but had we won the third game, we would have stayed on the field for the remainder of the tournament.  Win your first game, but stay on the field and lose one, then stay on till you get eliminated...hmmm.  Anyway, like I said, no excuses.  We played tough teams, played terrible defense, and lost.

June 29  Golden Corral splits a 2-2 at Dixie.
Golden Corral scored some runs early on but was out of gas by the fourth game and finished 2-2 in the third leg of the Dixie-Dudley Series.  There were some quality teams in this tournament, but The Corral expects to compete at a higher level in the coming weeks.
