Diamond Rematches

It was more of the same Friday afternoon as the boys from Camp Pok-O-Moonshine split a pair of baseball games with Camp Lincoln.

15morebaseball02At Keeseville:  Solid pitching and consistent offense led Pok-O to a 7-1 road victory in the younger baseball game.  On the heels of Camden‘s no-hitter Tuesday, two more Pok-O hurlers put in strong mound performances with Noah G and Will P teaming up for the win.

At the plate, Will had two singles, Wyatt produced a RBI double, while Camden and Mike M also contributed doubles.  “We played at 150%, and I think we deserved to win,” said Mike, who enjoyed visiting another camp, although “it was a little weird because everything was all green!”

At Willsboro:  Pok-O’s older team fell behind early and, despite some strong individual performances, did not have nearly enough experience to better a larger Lincoln team.

Pok-O scored in three different innings, and twice left the bases loaded but, as one anon15morebaseball07ymous observer stated, “the guys still needed three more touchdowns, with extra points, in order to tie the game.”

The Pok-O team featured several boys who had never played the game before coming to camp, but it was two of the more experienced players who put the action into proper perspective.  “I really enjoyed best the attitude of my teammates,” said David D.  “Towards the end, we knew we couldn’t come back, so we just decided to chill out and have fun.”

“We kept a positive attitude throughout,” added David M.  “At home, it’s more intense.  Everyone cares whether you win or lose.  This was more laid back.”

Pok-O-MacCready sports continues next week with soccer, sailing and basketball.  (See team photos and rosters)
