Last Sunday was indoor kickball playoffs over at the Northwest Rec Center, and whether you were playing in one of the games or just came to watch, there was quite a lot of excitement to be had!
The first game of the evening had first seeded team, Supercalifragilisticexpialimiguel, playing against the fourth seeded team, Strait Ballin. There was never any doubt as to who would come out on top in this semi-final game. Supercali took Strait Ballin to town in a 12-1 win and advanced to the championship round!
Seeds two and three faced off in the second game of the semis in the closest game of the night. Ball Me, Maybe and Kick Jung Uns traded blows throughout the entire game and was tied at 9 going to the 7th inning. Ball Me, Maybe loaded the bases with 1 out in the bottom of the inning, and scored the winning run on a base hit up the middle! The number two team, Ball Me, Maybe, sent Kick Jung Uns packing and never looked back!
The Championship round was a battle between the top two teams of the season: Supercalifragilisticexpialimiguel versus Ball Me, Maybe. The final game was very competitive with top seeded Supercali trailing most of the game. The winds seemed to change direction for them in the 5th inning when Supercali was able to get 4 runs under their belt, putting them ahead, 11-8. Ball Me, Maybe needed to pull out all the bells and whistles if they wanted to have a chance at a sweet victory. With only two innings left, Ball Me, Maybe was able to respond with 6 runs! Ball Me, Maybe was able to come back from behind and close out a 14-11 win and hoist the championship banner!
Congratulations, Ball Me, Maybe!
