Troy Ozone Rookies exact revenge

Published 11:16 pm Saturday, June 27, 2009

After going down 1-0 in the top of the first, the Troy Ozone Rookie Tournament team scored two in the bottom of the inning and never trailed again. Troy beat the Enterprise Americans 5-1 Saturday night in Troy to avenge a loss in a practice tournament last weekend in Enterprise.

“This was a great game and we hate to use the word revenge, but it felt good to beat a good team like that after they had beaten us before,” Troy head coach Don Simmons said. “It was a sweet win.”

The Enterprise Americans beat Troy 6-4 in a warmup tournament last weekend and Simmons said the win Saturday night in Troy was great.
