THREE CLOSE GAMES IN COED ACTION FRIDAY

Water and Power Authority squeaked by McDonald’s 7-5, Innovative Communications Corp. schooled Education 13-9, and Airport adjourned Senate 8-5 in Friday evening coed softball games.
The night did not start good for WAPA. They were barely able to get enough players for a team. However, they took advantage of some costly errors by McDonald’s.
WAPA scored first on a two-run home run by Aaron Shelford in the bottom of the first inning. Education answered with one in the top of the second and took the lead with three runs in the third. WAPA then recovered with two runs in the bottom of the third to tie the game at four.
WAPA scored three runs in the fifth, highlighted by Kelvin Malone's two-run home run to take a 7-4 edge. McDonald’s tried to come back in the seventh inning. They scored a run on a lead off triple by Robert Boschulte that was followed by a RBI single by Rashawn Murraine.
WAPA's Allen Brown retired the next three batters without allowing another run to end the game. Brown was the winning pitcher and Steve Hart got the loss.
In game two of the night, ICC's Maxine Cabo started her team's offensive barrage with a three-run double just over first base. Aubrey Haynes, Brenda Vanterpool, Vincent Matthews, Richard Penn and Michael Thomas each had two hits for ICC. Thomas hit a solo home run in the sixth.
Stanley Smith led Education both from the mound and with the bat. Smith had three hits in three at bats. Pedrito George and Neville Amey also had three hits apiece. Right fielder Michael Bute had his troubles on the field, but hit a three-run home run in the fourth.
Henry Richards picked up the victory for ICC as Smith lost the game.
Airport used timely hitting to take the night cap. Kenneth Smith sparked the hitting with a first inning two-run home run. He batted two for three. Camille Gibbs also hit a two-run home run in the fifth.
Airport withheld a late inning rally by Senate. Darin Richardson led Senate’s offense. He had three hits. Mercedes Latiff and Theopile Thomas also had two hits for Senate.
