The kickball team of the Mass Communication Students Association (MACOMSA) of the University of Liberia over the weekend defeated the Sociology and Anthropology Students Association (SASA) 11-7 home runs at the Fendell Sports pitch.
The match was part of the sporting activities following the installation ceremony of MACOMSA’s elected officials.
Under a blazing sunny weather, with sky blue jerseys, SASA introduced themselves through brilliant performance, making five home runs during their first inning.
However, host MACOMSA saw the visitors taking a comfortable lead that needed consolation and wasted no time to reply to the female social scientists.
Munah Wright and Augusta Lafalay were the industrious players in MACOMSA’s first inning after helping the team to hit eight home runs to change to scores to 8-5 after both teams’ first innings.
Despite the 8-5 scores, SASA made additional six homeruns to increase their tally to 11 during their second inning. Nonetheless, host MACOMSA entered their second inning with another brilliant comeback to change the scores 17-11.
First base keeper, Augusta Lafalay, became the star player of the match and finally clinched the much needed victory for MACOMSA after recording two consecutive outs to prevent SASA home base runners from reaching the home plate.
Irene Deline Horton, newly installed Vice President of the Association thanked her teams, in particular the kickball team for the victory and also thanked counterparts for gracing the occasion to make the day a success.
Meanwhile in football, MACOMSA suffered a 3-0 defeat against SASA that could afford to concede a defeat after their girls were earlier defeated.
