NOTE: This game was among the most dramatic ever played by the Ice Weasels. Initially it didn't seem like it would be. After the first few innings, the Weasels were up 16-0. But Felix & The Cats have a strong offense, and while it was absent in the beginning, it quickly made itself known. In a single inning they scored 10 runs, putting them within striking distance. They slowly chipped away at the Weasels' lead, and the Weasels' offense slowed down. Although the Ice Weasels scored 16 runs in the first three innings, in the second half of the game we only scored 3. The intensity through the later innings was high -- both teams cheered or groaned at every play. Through some excellent playing, the Weasels were able to maintain the lead and narrowly win. Everyone played very well, both offensively and defensively. Amy pitched another great game, and Aimee made a couple close plays at first base. This was a very important game against a very tough team, and the Ice Weasels came out on top. It was a hard fought victory.
