Granite crumble to Pioneers


The New Hampshire Granite fell to the well staffed Whatley Pioneers on 27 Apr 2013. Well the Granite provided excellent defense, following this 4 day journey to the Western expanses, their bats were lacking. Some may say it was due to offseason laziness but senior Granite member Doc Cochran contributed to the work of the devil. The Granite believe after their successful 2012 campaign their bats feel into the hands of a  local witch doctor who cursed the sacred wood. In response the Granite sacrificed Mike Utah O’Connor’s lunch in order to appease the Gods. Only time will tell if this was enough of a sacrifice to reverse the curse. Next game June 1, Nashua NH Pennichuck Educational Schooling Grounds.
