REGIONAL REMATCH IS SET FOR TODAY AT BOCA CIEGA. FALCONS AND PIRATES MEET AGAIN IN THE SEMIFINALS. 4PM START!
The Dunedin Falcons (14-14) and Boca Ciega Pirates (11-17) will meet for 4th and final time this year in the Regional Semifinals at Boca Ciega High School this afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 4pm.
Dunedin advanced by defeating the Lake Wales Highlanders last Wednesday night by a final score of 4-3. Bogie arrives after knocking off Auburndale by a final of 5-2 last week. It was the first playoff win for Boca Ciega since 1961. The Falcons are looking to return to the Regional Finals for the second straight year.
So far this season, the Falcons have won 2 of the 3 meetings with the Pirates. But Bogie got the most important victory in the series with a 3-2 win to capture the district championship. The Falcons will look to their ace, Colton Widdows (5-3) today at Boca Ciega. Widdows was 1-0 with a no decision vs. the Pirates during the regular season.
