Blue put up 2 in the bottom half of the inning, but Rooster's battled back in the top of the seventh, plating 2 of their own to tie the game yet again. Bill Trego led off the bottom of the inning with a single and was moved to third on a shot by Mike Keaton. Trego scored on a single to left center by Darren Axon to seal the win. Offensive standouts were Terry Finch 3/3, Tim Rowe 2/3 with 3r scored, Bob Ruckman, Randy Rydman, Bill Garber and Bll Trego who were all 2/3 with a total of 7r scored. An outstanding win to end a great season by a team that played hard for each other every game and just would not ever give up. Thanks to Rick and Jim for doing a wonderful job umpiring an exciting game. Finally, to the best damn fans in the land, who were out in force, you are the best and we are all so glad you were there for us all year!
