Horde post season

 

Looks like the Horde grabbed the two-seed in class B as expected and will face the winner between Broadalbin-Perth and Ravena, the 10 and 7-seeds, respectively (at home, see below).

Looking over the rest of the pairings and nothing looks easy for any of the teams.

In the land of one and done anyone can advance, and one bad outing can sink a potential champion, meaning those Horde bats have to bigger and meaner than the team that put a 34-3 beating on the Saranac team at the Burch tournament earlier in the season.

Granville has shown the ability to overcome/solve difficult pitchers, and others they’re just brutal with.

My knowledge of the rest of ‘B’ is limited, but I don’t see any dominant pitcher like Kraham from last season and Chatham’s side of the bracket is no walkover.

The Garcia kid from Spa is going to UAlbany and I’m guessing he could get enough rest between wins to meet the Horde in Troy should both teams make the final. However, if the idea is throw your best first to ensure that the team has a shot to advance, he could have thrown to many pitches – hard tellin’ not knowin’ someone once said.

The only way Granville will face an opponent they’ve already seen would be for Spa or Hudson Falls to get hot and tear through the Bs.

This situation will change almost from day to day but Saturday will be the first day that shows anything about how the tounrey will shape up.

 

Granville

WILL

get a home game this Saturday, against the above mentioned teams (B-P/Ravena). At NOON!

The weather looks good, sunny and not too hot.

facing the winner of the Fonda(3)/Watervliet(6)/Hudson Falls(11) matchups at Bleeker in Albany with the B final scheduled for 2 p.m. June 5 at Joe "Being investigated" Bruno stadium

in the other half of the bracket one-seed Chatham must get past the winner of Johsntown (8)vs Cairo-Durham (9) and the beat the winner from Hudson (5)/Spa Catholic (4)

Are we in for another match up of Friday night at the Joe? Who has Chatham really faced this season and are they as formidable without their ace from last season?
