Ea­gles reach AA Di­vi­sion fi­nal

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The Summerside Chrysler Dodge Ea­gles sim­ply ran out of gas.

A tired Ea­gles’ team, which was play­ing their sev­enth game in three days, dropped an 11-0 de­ci­sion to the Port­land Brew­ers from Ore­gon in Fri­day af­ter­noon’s cham­pi­onship game of the AA Di­vi­sion at the North Amer­i­can Fast­pitch As­so­ci­a­tion world cham­pi­onship tour­na­ment. The Ea­gles com­pleted play in the AA Di­vi­sion with a very re­spectable record of 4-3.

The Ea­gles were right back on the field later Fri­day play­ing in the A Di­vi­sion. They lost 11-2 to the Lacey’s A’s from Wash­ing­ton. The Ea­gles are back in ac­tion on Satur­day morn­ing against an op­po­nent that will not be de­ter­mined un­til late Fri­day night.

Three Ea­gles — pitcher Mitch Hardy, left-fielder Mor­gan Mur­phy and first base­man Matthew Daw­son — were rec­og­nized for their strong play by be­ing named to the tour­na­ment’s Al­lWorld Team.

Ear­lier Fri­day, the Ea­gles ad­vanced to the fi­nal by edg­ing the Rice Lake Orange­men from Wis­con­sin 6-5.

The Ea­gles, who dropped a 4-0 de­ci­sion to the Orange­men on Thurs­day, opened up a 6-2 lead in the top of the sev­enth inning, and then held on for the one-run vic­tory.
