South Oakland Ducks of the North Side (3-2)
South Hills Devils (4-2)
South Oakland looks to get back on track after a tough loss to the Grizzlies when they travel to Elliot to take on the Devils. This is a rematch of last year’s epic 10-inning loser’s bracket semifinal that basically assured neither team would be rested or have enough pitching to advance to the finals.
Devil’s manager, Rich Rodi will likely deploy the neutral zone trap, in an attempt to stifle the Ducks breakout.
It will be the Devil’s third game in two days, band both teams figure to be short handed due to the holiday weekend. I’m excited to play a day game. 9pm on a weekday feels a lot later than it did ten years ago. Anyway…
Both teams have championship aspirations, and both teams are currently chasing the Grizzlies (4-0) and Oilers (6-2) in the standings. It should be a closely contested affair.
