Grays Grab Pair Of Wins


The Payson Grays senior softball team tuned up for the opening of spring play in the Fountain Hills league next week with a pair of wins over the Prescott seniors.

In the opener of a doubleheader played Friday at Rumsey, Payson emerged victorious 11-2 behind a 15-hit attack. In the nightcap, the Grays continued to pound the ball, stroking 28 hits in a 23-15 victory.

In the opener, Tom Friday and Fran Doering powered home runs. Starting pitcher Ron Maksymowski and the Gray defense held Prescott to seven runs. Both Prescott runs came during a second-inning uprising.

In the second encounter, Walk Knasick cranked a circuit blast as did Doering, who also had two singles. Dusty Wright, Ken Cheeseman and Corb Corbin finished with four each.

Neil McVicar was the winning pitcher.
