Zimmerman Thunder 10U fall regular season comes to a close with a 7 and 1 record. Awesome play by our team this season.
With one weekend to go our state tournament is this weekend. I will keep everyone posted on when and where our first game is scheduled for.
The games this weekend were much closer as we played two teams that originally ranked themselves as a 5 and 4 while we started the season as a 2. These girls are playing like 10's to me. They don't get themselves into the mode of we can't do this it is more like what do we need to do to get the job done.
See you on the field.
The games schedule is out and we play at 3pm and 4:30 pm we play in Andover at Sunshine Park so not terribly far to go.
We play on Field 2 first and then Field 1 for the last game.
We play Orno Kastamo first at 3pm and then Andover Moore for the next game.
Please come about 45 minutes prior to the 3pm game to get in our softball mode.
The ladies played exceptionally well this weekend. We had a lightning delay in our first game and they were still able to hold it all together to produce a convincing win over the #9 team in the league. In our second game after allowing 5 runs in the first half inning the offense took charge and did not look back getting the runs back in the bottom of the first and then our defense held them to only 1 run in the top of the 2nd inning. Needing only two runs to win the game we secured that quickly and since there was time remaining the umpires let us continue until we had our 5 runs.
We have a group of young ladies on this team that work together, and nothing seems to get them down.
These wins mean we are moving up in the standings, I will let everyone know where we are when the are finalized. The scores are supposed to be posted by noon on the Monday following the games and the standings will be posted after that.
Game schedules come out on Wednesday in the afternoon, so I will not know when or where the games are until then.
