Day Two Report by Kevin Friesen
The Huff & Puffs 55s closed out round robin play at the Huntsman Senior Games in
St. George with a 30-12 loss to Team Harsh from Southern California. The Huff & Puffs got
off to a quick start with a 5-1 lead after one inning before the California bats came alive.  
At the plate, Jim Stewart hit a pair of home runs, a two run and a three run shot. John Engel
and Dave Hammel also homered. Medicine Hat,1-2 in pool play will now wait and see what
bracket and when their game is scheduled.
1st Playoff Round Report by Kevin:
The Huff & Puffs 55s opened up the playoff round at the Huntsman Senior Games with a pair
of convincing wins on Thursday night.
In the first game, John Engel went 4 for 4 with two doubles as the Huff & Puffs defeated
Victoria, BC 17-12.
In the second game, Medicine Hat upended Edmonton Dirty Oil 25-13. John Engel again
went 4 for 4.  Cal Mayer and Brian Stonehouse each had three hits.  Kelly Lutz picked up the
wins in both games.  
The Huff & Puffs scored 42 runs without hitting a homerun.  They will now play Friday at
3:10. The Huff & Puffs are guaranteed at least a bronze medal and with a win Friday would
win no less than a silver and play for Gold Saturday.
2nd Playoff Round Report:
After scoring 42 runs in two games last night, the Huff & Puffs went silent today in their semi
final against the Gold Crushers from Northern California dropping a 12-9 decision.   
Royce Hopkins, Trent Rasch, and Cal Mayer had two hits for the Huff & Puffs who will now
play the winner of the Edmonton Dirty Oil and Lethbridge Old Dogs quarter final.
The Huff & Puffs guaranteed no worse than bronze play tomorrow morning at 8:30 and must
win 3 straight to win gold.
Final Playoff Round Report by Kevin Friesen
The Huff & Puffs 55s will come home with a silver medal.  
On the final day, the Huff & Puffs advanced to the gold medal game following a convincing 22-11
victory over Edmonton Dirty Oil. Jim Stewart hit a three run home run while Trent Rasch had three
hits and picked up the win.  Unfortunately in the gold medal contest, the Huff & Puffs we’re defeated
19-7 by the Gold Crushers from Northern California.  It is the second year in a row the 55s have
brought home silver finishing the tournament with a 4-4 record.  
A very special thanks to our terrific wives for their tremendous encouragement and support.
A big thanks to the 70s and their wives for being great cheerleaders. Also thanks to Annette Johnston
and Joanne Rasch for scorekeeping.  
Our 59s moving onto the 60s next year, John Engel, Glen Stodolka and Jeff Thompson. Jeff joined us
all week here in St. George and was an inspiration to all of us, it will be nice to see you in a uniform
next year Jeff!!!!   It was a great year and look forward to seeing everyone next season
