LIBERTY July 13, 2007 On Tuesday evening, Klein & Sons Logging earned a hard-fought victory over Charlie’s Angels in a Sullivan County Women’s Softball League (SCWSL) “A” Division game which Mother Nature cut short last Friday.
Tuesday evening’s game, which was played at the Liberty Elementary School field, started in the bottom of the second inning with Charlie’s Angels up at bat but down on the scoreboard.
In the top of the third, Klein & Sons Logging increased its 2-1 lead to a whopping 9-1 advantage.
Kayla Scannell’s three-run homer brought out an excited roar from the Klein & Sons dugout as Krys Stant and Cheryl Sheerer crossed home plate in front of Scannell.
Both Klein & Sons and Charlie’s Angels put up a fierce defensive battle after Scannell’s home run. Fielders from both teams were in top form, stopping the majority of the scoring for the remainder of the contest.
However, Klein & Sons wasn’t prepared for the second three-run homer of the game, one that was hit by a Charlie’s Angels player.
In the bottom of the sixth, Shannon Dietrich blasted the ball over Klein & Sons outfielders and followed two teammates across home plate.
The Klein & Sons players were a little more than enthusiastic about their 11-5 victory. One of the Klein & Sons players said this was the first time in about four years that the team had defeated Charlie’s Angels.
“We played a great game against a great team,” said Klein & Sons player Jill Hubert-Simon. “But this is only one game. We’ve got a lot more to go!”
With the victory, Klein & Sons improved its record to 9-3.
Charlie’s Angels is now 11-2 on the season.
