In a classic and deciding third game, the Testa Landscaping Devil-Rays defeated the Dodge-Thomas Marlins 10-9 to capture the Junior Girls World Series. After dropping the first game, the D-Rays came back to win the second game setting up the thrilling third game. The D-Rays started the scoring as Nina Jimenez and Amanda Mariana hit back-to-back home runs in the second inning. It was Jimenez's third home run of the series. The Devil-Rays added three more runs to take a 5-0 lead only to see the Marlins come back and take a 9-8 lead after five innings. The D-Rays then scratched a run in the 6th on an RBI single by Katherine Dolecki and added another run in the 7th to take a 10-9 lead. This set the stage for the climatic bottom of the 7th. The Marlins had their heart of the order up but the D-Rays defense held them scoreless, led by Dolecki's game saving catch as she snared a line-drive that was headed for the outfield with a runner on first. Pitcher Estephany Andino then struck out the next two batters and the D-Rays were crowned champions. Getting key hits in the game were Julie Galluccio, (2-2) Stephanie Iannetta, and Amanda Guzman who each had timely hits. Overall it was a total team effort all year as the girls kept on getting better every game. The team was led by Dianna Belifore's timely hitting and defense at 2nd base. Kelly DeAngelis with her excellent hitting and her play in the field at 1st and third base and the pitching of Andino who was flawless in the playoffs. The big bats of Dolecki, Jimenez (7 homeruns), Mariana (3 homeruns), and Monique Green who also pitched and played first base, and the defense in clutch hitting by Amanda Pagnillo and Agnes Grasiosi. The final member of the team Christa Granros's season was cut short due to injury but was still helpful to the team. Manager Tony Belifore and Coaches Mike Galluccio and Angelo DeAngelis wish to thank the parents, and especially the girls, for a rewarding season.
