Colonie-Clifton Park Mack Rematch

NEWSFLASH: In a 10 a.m. email from the South Colonie coach, today's final between Clifton Park and Colonie has been moved to South Colonie High School and will not be played at Knickerbacker Park as originally scheduled.

The South Colonie Raiders, the defending Upper New York Connie Mack Tournament champions, are the only undefeated team left in 2008. The Raiders face the Clifton Park Yankees in the championship round Saturday, starting at noon.

Since Clifton Park has one loss, should they lose the first game, Colonie wins the tournament. Should Clifton Park win the opening game, the teams will play again in a double-elimination, all-or-nothing game.

The winner of the tournament earns a berth in the North Atlantic Regional Tournament to be held at Geer Field beginning on Wednesday, July 23rd.
The South Troy Dodgers, as hosts, automatically qualify.

The Lansingburgh Royals beat the Sorensco DevilCats 10-2 in their first game of the day, but fell to South Colonie 10-8 in the nightcap. The Royals, however, made a late charge in the twilight. Sorensco's Tim Murdick sneaks in beging Lansingburgh catcher Keith Diotte to score a run in the second inning. (J.S. Carras — The Record).

Trailing 10-5 heading into their last ups, the Royals used a two-run single from Brian Beaury (who was on fire all tournament) to narrow the lead to 10-7. Beaury then scored on a wild pitch, making it 10-8.

But that was as close as the homestanding Royals could get.
The key group of players have been playing together for the better part of six years and over that stretch, the team went 135-33 and won four regular season league titles.

"That's typical Royals baseball," said manager Joe Henkel. "We played a game Colonie team and I'm extremely proud of my boys. This group made their mark in everything they've done."
