Regular Season Champs!

After eight hard fought games, the Guy Fawkes Conservatory emerged unscathed with a perfect 8-0 record for Studio Division's summer season, clinching the regular season championship. Not only have we secured the number one seed for the playoffs (of which everyone qualifies), we also secured a berth in next years National Tournament which rumor has it will be in Vegas again (hopefully when it's not so damn hot). Our perfect season was sealed this past Monday night after an intense 3-0 victory over Trey Stafford Explosion. In typical GFC fashion, a strong defense, some timely kicking, and dominating pitching paved the way. Congrats GFC and hopefully the wins keep coming in the playoffs!

GFC: Week 6 & 7

I know, still running behind...

Week 6 brought the third installment of our grudge match with Uno Mas. Even though they are having a bit of a down year, they always seem to give us fits. Early on they jumped out to a 1-0 lead. Their lead did not stand for long, however, as we rallied for two runs. Our strong defense (fueled by my first strike out as a pitcher) stiffened down the stretch to seal a 2-1 victory and keep us undefeated on the season.

Week 7 we faced That's What She Said who are the only team in the league to not have a win. Thanks to a couple strikeouts from our dominating pitchers and some well placed kicking, we pulled out a 4-1 (guess who gave up that lone run?) win to run our regular season to 7-0 and set up a winner take all for our final regular season game.

GFC: Week 5

Yes, I know I'm two weeks behind.

Week 5 saw the fruition of our cross-conference mystery matchups; the mystery being that game matchups would be determined by that weeks standings. Since we were first in our conference, we were paired against the Mean Boys (who are not really mean). Despite the fact that we allowed more runs in the game than we had allowed all season to that point, we erupted for an offensive explosion (at least by our standards) to help seal a win and keep our perfect record intact. As a side note, this game featured the first player ejection in our league's three-year history. Honestly, it could have been avoided, but unfortunately folks emotions get the better of them sometimes.
