FINALS PREVIEW! Friday, Sep 19 2014

Due to the rainout from last week Semis matchup between Hurricanes and Panthers will be at 6.30 PM tonight under the lights of Wantagh Park.  The Finals will be held at Christopher Morley Park in

500 Searingtown Rd, Roslyn, NY 11576.

TBirds vs Panthers

 

This should be a good matchup if Panthers win. The addition of Leo and the young DRs has given Panthers that extra leg up they needed vs. the competition.  With the leadership of Cap Amin can they overcome the upstart TBirds.  The keys for this matchup will be timely hitting and defense.  As is usuallythe case the team that makes less base running mistakes and plays solid D should walk away wit the 2014 Cup.  With the likes of Travis, Osi and Zain Cap Waqas has a great chance of being the first player to win back to back titles, along with co-cap Farooq and LCF Osi.  Can they cash in on this historic opportunity? 

For Panthers pitching and solid D will be key.  IF TBirds get on a roll hitting wise look out.  As Bandits found out last week when TBirds bat wake up its lights out for the other team.  We expect a high scoring affair in Game 1 and TBirds to take Game by 15-11.  Game 2 Panthers will adjust and pull out a hard fought 12-10 win.  Game 3 TBirds will seal the deal with a 18-11 win and walk away with 2014 CUP!

 

 

TBirds vs Hurricanes

Lets not forget our other possible Finals participant Hurricanes.  Ali Sher is at it again with his usual trickery and mind games.  Lest we forget this would be their 3rd title appearance and they are 2-0 so far.  With the likes of Ramy, Shekib, Naveed, Nadeem, Majid this team is loaded top to bottom!  They are highest seed left at #2 and will be favorites going into Finals.  With the veteran and CSL Hall of Fame inductee Nader on the mound this team is looking to get back to the top again.  This series will be HR or bust theme.  Both teams have heavy hitters who can bash it out of the yard at a moments notice.  Expect this series to be even more intense than Panthers vs TBirds.  If this series comes to fruituiton we expect Hurriacnes to pull it out in the 3 hard fought battles.

Semifinals Update - TBirds Punch Their Ticket, Canes Panthers Wait.. Sunday, Sep 14 2014

 

Series 1: Thunderbirds shock a Bandits team in two games to advance to the finals.  TBirds showed true grit that helped them prevail to the Championship Series..  Down 15-7 in the 6th inning they chipped away to make it 15-10 going into the bottom of the 7th.  Their leadoff hitter Zain, who had a monster 10-11 day hitting wise, led off w a huge single.  Farooq followed w a walk and Osi single to load up the bases.  After several more scorching line drive hits from the heart of their lineup the score was suddenly knotted at 15 in the blink of an eye.  In an instant classic, with the bases loaded, clean up hitter Pat smoked a game ending line drive to seal the Bandits fate in Game 1. 16-15 TBIRDS.

Game 2 TBirds jumped on a broken Bandits squad 6-0 early.  Bandits made several uncharacteristic mistakes.  Perhaps it was the pressure of being 18-0 or just plain jitters they were being outplayed througly.  But to their credit Jr, Pops and several others hit several shots and never gave up.  Thanks some HR power by Jr Mike and a 3 run blast from Boomer they were only down 2 in the bottom of 6th.  With runners at 1B and 3B and only 1 out perhaps the play of the series occured.  Bandits hit a deep fly ball which was caught by TBirds Captain Waqas in RCF, and he made an incredible throw to home plate on the fly that was caught by co-cap Farooq and he was able to lay the tag down to gun out Pops at home plate.  The catch em out and throw em out Double Play was the momentum changer! TBirds tacked on another run in the top of the 7th and a nifty double play by Pat and Abir was turned to end the series and stamp an incredible first round upset by Tbirds!

 

Series 2: Hurricanes vs. Panthers.  Rained Out.  Will be played Sat Sept 20th.

Finals/Awards/BBQ will be delayed to either Sept 21 or another date. Stay tuned...

Thunderbirds Vs. Bandits Friday, Sep 12 2014

 

Series 1: Thunderbirds vs. Bandits
Time & Date: 10:15 am, September 13, 2014,
Place: Eisenhower, Field 1
Tag Line: Enemies in Softball
Match-up: There is nothing that can be written on this preview that will reveal the true intensity these two teams will bring on Saturday. Simply put, they HATE each other on the softball field. Last season they were one team and won the CHIP. That was then and this is now…the Thunderbirds (with former Bandits Ozzie, Farooq, Waqas, and AR) have a huge challenge in front of them – which is to knock off the perfect record Bandits who now have secured Hashim, Parwez, and a few others to qualify for the playoffs.   Captain Pops (probable Captain of the Year) will take his perfect record and devise a game plan to beat his old buddies. Both of these teams have good softball IQ and will be ready to put their best foot forward. The Thunderbirds have a few holes on defense but will make adjustments as needed. The Bandits were perfect so their weakness’ has yet to surface.
Keys to Win: As reported, last week the Thunderbirds must shore up their defense if they want to win. There are holes in Right Field, Pitching, and at 2B. They are hitting fine but they have never faced a guy like Yasar – which could be a bit tricky. The Thunderbirds have to find a way to stop Hashim and Junior. These two can change the game in a hurry. Meanwhile the Bandits are solid in every position. With Hashim in the infield, Pops manning CF, and Yasar at the mound, their up the middle defense will be a vacuum. The keys for them are to contain the base running of the Thunderbirds and exploit the Birds defense. Riz could be deceptive as a pitcher but his lack of softball IQ could be exploited. And believe us the Bandits will do their homework on each Bird.  

Prediction: If we go by past performances, the community predicts this series going to 3 games. The TBirds will game 1 by a squeaker due to good defense and timely hitting. Game 1 score: TBirds 9, Bandits 6. Game 2: The Bandits offense will wake up and tag the TBirds defense with a lot of runs and win by a score of 18-7. Game 3: The TBirds will keep it close until the 5th inning when the Bandits will generate multiple runs due to shoddy defense of TBirds and seal the win going away by a score of 13-7.
