Bocce Team 2015 Div Final Four

The Villagers bocce ball team had a season to remember.  After getting through the divisional playoff series with two straight wins, we went on to  compete in the DC city-wide tournament at Garfield Park in DC on Saturday, September 12th. We were among four teams representing Ballston in the Divisional Final Four. Going up against Ballzagna, a friendly group of four young men, the Villagers threatened early. We jumped ahead with a 5 point lead. Shortly thereafter, the game tightened and remained close. But in the end, the Ballzagna four found their range and went on a streak to win it by a score of 16 to 9. The rain did not dampen our enthusiasm and determination to win. We played well and look forward to next year for another chance to compete in the city-wide tourney.
