Three teams tied for league title
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The John F. Kennedy Titans (Fremont) and Washington Huskies (Fremont) played their most important game of the year on May 2, a critical game for both teams. The Huskies entered the contest just one game back at 6-2 and, with a win, would tie up the Mission Valley Athletic League lead. James Logan?s Colts (Union City) were also in the running as they met the Moreau Catholic Mariners (Hayward) to vie for a piece of the tie.
The Huskies began their attack early, scoring two runs and adding to the score over the next three innings. Although the Titans tried to stem the tide, they were unable to generate momentum even loading the bases in the bottom of the fifth inning. A great defensive Huskies play by third baseman Stevie Murata (23) killed the drive, ending any threat. Final score: Huskies 2, Titans 1.
In concurrent action, James Logan Colts met the Moreau Catholic Mariners and moved into a three-way tie for the League lead with an 8-3 win. With just five games left in the regular league season, the lead is up for grabs.
As of deadline, Washington and James Logan are tied for MVAL lead at 8-2 and John F. Kennedy trails by one game with a 7-3 record. Newark Memorial Cougars are in fourth place with a 6-4 record.
