Friday was clearly one of the most unusual experiences I've ever had at a high school sporting event. I was going to the Hollis/Brookline-Souhegan softball game, which was to start in Amherst at 6:30 p.m. I got there a little after 6 and heard cheering from the softball field before I saw the players. My first thought was that they changed the time, but as I watched I realized it was the JV game, which was still in the fifth inning with HB ahead 12-10. I figured it was going to take awhile to finish the game and then get the varsity game start, but I really had no idea.

The JV game ended at 7:15, with HB winning 21-20. The varsity game didn't start until 8 and after four innings, HB led 17-5 and was six outs away from ending the game early (softball has a 12-run mercy rule). But Souhegan scored two runs in the fourth, and then eight in the fifth and it was 17-15 and already after 10. By the bottom of the seventh, HB's lead was back to six runs, 21-15, but wouldn't you know, Souhegan rallied. Souhegan scored five runs to get to one, and with two outs, put runners on first and second. The game ended with the tying run thrown out at the plate for the final out at 10:57. HB won 21-20, just like the JVs.
