The Dragons came out on fire and never looked back. My star of the game was Silvana Seidita who was 1-1, two walks and 2RBI’s. An outstanding game, and keep up the good work.

I would like to thank Paulina and Lauren for coming to the game on short notice to help us out and they did so by going 5-5 combined and a walk. Great job girls!!
