Last week, Studio PBA’s kickball team, Paul’s Ball Army completed its inaugural playoff game in the “Spring” Citywide Architect Kickball League. Due to a mid-game weather postponement the week before, PBA’s match against Barker Rinker Seacat resumed after two completed innings, with Team Orange ahead 9 runs to 5.
PBA’s representation resembled a sea of orange, and the team was firing on all cylinders. Team Orange cruised to a 27-12 defeat of Dog & Pony Show (Barker Rinker Seacat).
Being a win-or-go-home scenario, Paul’s Ball Army then advanced to face the Goliath of the league; Davis Partnership (The Kittens). PBA was narrowly defeated in the opening chug-off and therefore served as the away team, setting up the Kittens to kick last in the game. Stifling defense by the Kittens and a treacherous bottom of the second for the Soldiers flipped the game in Davis’ favor. PBA’s 2-1 lead swung to a 10-2 deficit after two innings. However, the deficit proved to be too difficult for the double-header team to overcome. Paul’s Ball Army fell to the Kittens, 18-10. Meow.
The season is now over, but going .500 in the playoffs proves our team is heading in the right direction. We now have the off-season to practice our splash-catches, head-first dives, and beer chugging.
Thank you to everyone who played and supported the team by cheering us on!
