Game of the Week

The Leland Legends will play Sugar Hill on Field 2 at 12:00 pm. The Royals will be umpiring.

Week 6 is a big week for a lot of teams. Week 67 marks the half way mark for the NYESL season. All teams are looking to head into the biggest tournament of the year, Memorial Day Tournament, on a good note. Two teams that are separated by 1 point in the standings will battle it out in week six. The last time these two teams played each other, Sugar Hill walked away with a 5 – 1 victory. Sugar Hill (6-3-1) currently holds a 1 point lead over Leland (6-4) in the standings and sit in 3rd place heading into week 6.

What To Look Out For:

The Leland Legends are on a 4 game winning streak. The last time this team lost was on May 7, to the Ravens. Leland will need to keep the young Sugar Hill team off second base. Field 2 is a hitters field, so their defense will be tested. Leland is not a high scoring team but their defense is always good enough to get them wins.

Sugar Hill is looking to stay in 3rd and catch up to the Gold. Sugar Hill won this last match-up. Ralph went 4 for 4 with 2 RBIs and he will be looking to have the same results from the first match-up. Sugar Hill will need to rack up on the runs and put Leland away early.
