It was a hot end of summer Sunday night at Eyman Park in front of a large crowd as the Fayette County Dragons and the Guns-N-Hoses softball teams squared up in a dime-a-dog night game of remembrance for the 15 year anniversary of the 9-11 attacks on our Country!

The game started of with the playing of Amazing Grace by the local American Legion followed by the National Anthem sang by Brittany Hook and a ceremonial first pitch thrown out by a September 11 first responder Manuel.

Then it was that time the Dragons took the field as the home team.

After a hard-fought, back-and-forth battle, it came down to the bottom of the 9th inning with the bases loaded and two outs when Bobby Davis connected for a single down the line to left scoring Charles Cadamy.

The Dragons came out on top with a final score of 22-21.

The JV Dragons, coached by Chad Blakely, Jordan Adams, and Nick Oyer, made an appearance and scored nine runs in the 6th and 7th innings.

It was a great night for some softball and hot dogs.

The Fayette County Dragons consisted of: Chuck Stackhouse, Matthew Darden, Josh Rollins, Tyler Wallace, Charles Cadamy, Ethan Cowman, Adam Morris, Robbie Morris, Jessica Carner, Bobby Davis, Jon Manson, Matt Doggett, Larry Mongold and coach Erica McKinney.

The Guns-N-Hoses team consisted of: Jason O’Dierno, Roger Wilson, Butch Williamson, Colt Sever, Tony Hamilton, Matt Pfeifer, Brad Brobeck, Jeff Heinz, Tyler Osborne, Nick Wilson and coach Caleb McKinney.
