POSSE, ANGELS ADVANCE IN SENTHILL PLAYOFFS

The brooms were out Friday night at Emile Griffith Park in the Donald O. Senthill Softball League semifinals as Smith Bay Posse eliminated defending champions Hit & Run, 16-15. In the female contest, the Angels knocked Who Nex out of the playoffs, defeating them 18-13.
Smith Bay Posse squandered a six-run lead in the bottom of the seventh inning. But the Posse scored one run in the top of the eight inning and kept Hit & Run scoreless in the bottom half to move on to the championship round against the winner of the Marlins-Mountaineers series.
The Posse once again knocked Hit & Run's starting pitcher, Alvin Morton, off the mound as they pounded out hit after hit. Cyril Battiste picked up the victory as Wayne Henry suffered the defeat in relief of Morton.
Michael Davis was 3 for 4 as teammates Elrod Hendricks Jr. and Eustace Grant each went 2 for 3 for Hit & Run. The Posse was led offensively by Jerry Gooding, who went 2 for 2, and Kirby Callender, 3 for 4. The Posse swept the best of five series, 3-0.
The Angels rallied from being down 8-2 after four innings to cruise to victory over Who Nex. Gail Joseph relieved Joycelyn Lee-Bobb to pick up the victory for the Angels. The Angels now await the winner of the Cummin 2 Cum-Sumting Nu series to battle for the women's championship.
