American Ponytails take district tournament
SoVaNow.com / June 24, 2013At the end, Shekeria Chandler slammed a flare into the gap, scrambling frantically around the bases, looking to make a decisive game-changing play for the American Ponytails in the clinching game of the district tournament Saturday afternoon.
Chandler ripped around the bases, getting the winning run to end a two-day tournament for the Ponytails X-play division. The Americans cliched a heartstopping 6-5 win over their county rivals, the Halifax National Ponytails.
HA celebrated the district tournament win, while the Nationals got the sportsmanship trophy.
The Saturday afternoon affair went back-and-forth with momentum swings. HN scored once in the first. Both teams had a run in the second. HA scored twice in the third, adding one run in the fourth. HN rallied with a three-run fifth to tie the contest, before the Americans sealed the deal with Chandler’s one-out game-winner.
Halifax National really battled, getting a RBI groundout from Amy Wilson, along with a run-scoring single from Calli Neal and an RBI from Makayla Pulliam. The Nationals put together a three-run rally in the fifth, but it was not enough.
Halifax National won the first game on the field, 10-7, between the two local teams. But the game result was nullified by the protest committee, giving the Halifax Americans the first game win. HN had to forfeit.
