the Tale of Two Teams: Carli Whitley came out strong for Calvary, only to see a series of errors put Foothills in a solid 7-1 lead. Things looked bleak as the Lions missed signs and base stealing opportunities, stopping at bases like they were checking into the hotel for the night. Coach Beach Bum Jim got them going though, scoring 10 runs on a series of walks and advancing on errors. Foothills had a tough time getting on track after that, yielding a total of 19 walks. Meanwhile, sister Cassidi Whitley took over the mound, holding the opposition to 2 hits and 1 run as the Calvary defense made stellar catches look like routine outs. Its not how you start - its how you finish!
