Sweet Revenge as EnvironMentals Sour the Cider

The Green Team handed division rivals Gettin' Cider a satisfying thumping in a darkness-shortened game on Thursday.

It was a quick turnaround from the Wednesday night victory over Blue Steel, and some wondered if they would have the energy to put in a strong showing against the hardened Gettin' Cider side.

However, the EnvironMentals fed off of the frustration from their last game against the Cider and came on strong with offense in every inning and equal defense throughout the match.

The teams played hurry-up kickball as they sought to get in the required three innings before it became too dark to play safely. Seven runs through the first three innings with key RBIs by BK, Kellen, Erin and Will gave the Green Team a comfortable lead as they took field on defense.

As it became difficult to see in the fourth inning, Gettin' Cider put runners on base that had the Green Team feeling déjà vous after the previous night’s late game breakdown.

However, a key catch by first baseman Colin in the twilight put the final nail in the coffin.

As satisfying as this victory was for the Green Team, the focus has quickly turned to the post season as the EnvironMentals find themselves in first place at the end of the regular season.

“We’re pumped,” said Captain Eric, pumping his fist for emphasis. “We’re gonna ride this crazy train all the way to the end!”
