Georgetown, Texas: The St. Johns Saints Co-Ed softball team played their season opener, last Friday night against the team called Scarred Hitless. Being the home team, The Saints took the defense in the field first. It took a while for The Saints to knock the cobs out of their gloves as they allowed 7 runs before getting their chance to swing the sticks. After experiencing a slow start, The Saints watched Scared Hitlless go through their entire batting order before getting 3 outs. Then it was The Saints turn at bat. By the end of the first complete inning The Saints took the field leading 8-7. The defense in the field was awesome as The Saints only allowed one more run ending a quick inning with a tied score of 8-8. When The Saints took up batting the church team never looked back. Hit after hit and walk after walk. Contributing to the success were several home runs and wise base running. The second ½ of The Saints lineup was able to take over the bats after going through the batting order a second time. By the time the dust cleared in the next complete inning, The Saints lead 26-8. Time was running out for Scarred Hitless as they came in to bat. The Saints allowed only one run when the umpire called the end of the game resulting in The Saints first win with a decisive 26-9. The Saints played their opener in loving memory of Louise Hilliard. The Saints would like to thank those fans in attendance Friday night and invite one and all to join us this coming Friday night as they take on Here Come the Runs at 9:00 p.m. on Field #4. In all that they do, they play to praise His name for all honor and glory go our Lord and Savior. The Saints commitment is opened and closed in prayer. Come join us. Go Saints!
