Jen Ingraham of the Rug Sox and Pat Rolston of the 'Canes took their swings during this week's softball action at Veterans Park.

The defending champion Honeys overpowered the Creamers, 19-6, Tuesday night in women’s slow pitch play at Veterans Park.

The evening began with the Snaps defeating the Rug Sox 21-8 on Field A and Mama’s Girls topping the Shady Ladies 14-6 on Field B. The Snaps jumped out to a 15-0 lead but the Rug Sox averted the mercy rule by posting eight runs during a two-out rally in the fifth inning. The Snaps put the icing on the cake with six runs in the seventh. Mama’s Girls put up a 7-0 lead in the first inning and held off the Shadies the rest of the way.

In men’s play, on Monday night at Veterans Park, the two-time defending champion Hurricanes stormed to the top of the Island Softball League standings with a 7-1 record. The ‘Canes got production from everyone in the lineup in a 21-1 mercy-shortened win over the Floaters.

In the nightcap, Lamar Moreis drilled a home run as the Blazers edged the Brewhas, 10-9, atoning for a 20-18 walk-off loss in the previous meeting between the teams.
