Full Report coming soon, but we just took down Olney 5-3 today!!!
Olney, the Defending Champs, have made back-to-back appearances in the City Title Game, and walked into this game with a swagger that matched their recent success.
But the Rockets put up 3 in the 1st, and Ben Simon was really sharp throughout, going 5IP 3R 2ER 4H 8K 3BB. Lukas came in for an inning of relief, and Leon shut the door in a tense bottom of the 7th.
A true team win, SLA is 3-0 atop A-Division, with tie breakers over two teams that won the City Title Championship and made it to the Finals the year prior.
Afterward, the Rockets relished this "major statement game", but immediately reflected on how they can improve for next time. Always
