Corral / EASTON 2006
Corral/Easton Softball traveled to Richmond, VA to the
first leg of the Worth/CAC Series Tournament this past
weekend. GC started off slowly by dropping the
first game 12-23 to R&S Auction, who hit the ball
very well. It was at this point that GC realized
it would either be a very short day or a very long one.
The Corral opted for the latter as they rolled out early
versus Bell Construction. Bell mounted a huge
comeback, however, to make the final close, 24-21.
In the next game, a strong Cooke's/Pari/Allen squad
could not overcome a 16-run first inning as Golden
Corral rolled to a 32-20 win in five. Bell's
chance for a payback game went by the wayside early with
GC posting a 15-run inning and cruising to a 19-2 win
after 3 and 1/2 innings. In the rematch against
R&S, GC kept it close as the game went into the
bottom of the sixth. GC, trailing by 2 runs, then
dropped 12 runs to leave them standing, 22-12.
This got GC to the finals versus the Rockies, who had
been sitting back waiting. GC rolled early in the
first game and never looked back in route to a 28-10
victory in five. The Rockies came out hitting it
in the "if" game, though, and jumped out to a
19-11 lead. The Corral was not going to let this
one get away. Golden Corral mustered a final big
inning by posting 14 in the fifth to serge ahead and
then ended the game in the bottom of the sixth by the
score of 31-21.
