The Revere Girls’ Softball League concluded last week, with the Patriettes defeating the Titans in the third game of a best-of-three series for the title. The Titans are sponsored by Dacey HVAC, and the Patriettes are sponsored by Quality Landscaping; they are coached by Dan Dacey and Corrie O’Neil, respectively.
The Titans took the first game, 21-14, followed by an 8-5 defeat by the Patriettes in the second game. The third game was played last Thursday evening at Griswold Field, and it was jam-packed with family, friends and league players to see the final game. The two-time champs Patriettes were hoping to three-peat, and the excitement was building.
The Titans took a one run lead in the first inning, and then lightning struck for the Patriettes: Catcher ZiZi Kalliavas hit a three-run blast, clearing the bases for a two-run lead. It was a nail-biter through four innings, then the Patriettes took a commanding 21-12 lead in in the fifth, giving up one more run, making them champions for the third season in a row.
It was a great showing for both teams – hard play, sportsmanship and never giving up. Congratulations to all the teams of the softball league, and of course, to the 2023 City of Revere Champions, the Patriettes.
