The Marysville Recreational Co-Ed Softball League pitted Olympic Pizza against 99 Problems on Aug. 6.

In the top of the first inning 99 Problems got off to a great start as they rallied behind their bats and put together five runs quickly. Olympic Pizza started off a lot slower as they were kept to a single run in the bottom of the same inning.

The second inning swung the momentum in a huge way for Olympic Pizza. After shutting out 99 Problems in the top of the inning, Olympic Pizza blew up for 14 huge runs and ran away with the game. After this huge swing, 99 Problems couldn't come back as Olympic Pizza walked away with the 21-6 win.

"Youth has been huge for us this year, we went young and have a lot more energy. We enjoy playing in the Marysville League and it's a lot of fun every year that we come out. Nobody gets too hot-headed whether it be win, lose or draw, and everyone comes out with a smile on their face," said Olympic Pizza player, and 20-year Marysville Rec League veteran, Nick Damianidis.

Damianidis put together an impressive performance at the bottom of the batting order as he had two hits, three runs, three RBIs and two doubles.

Riley Larsen and Mitchell Huglen played huge roles for Olympic Pizza from the plate. Larsen put together three hits, three runs, a game-high six RBIs, a double and an in-the-park home run. Huglen led the game with four hits, three runs, five RBIs and he also hit for the cycle with a single, double, triple and an in-the-park home run.

"It's something to do, something social and it's a great way to get in some exercise while you're having fun. A lot of us have kids and we know each other through them playing sports, so this gives us an opportunity for our kids to come and watch us play. We're the team that comes out here to just have a blast," said 99 Problems Manager Bryan Evans.

Ray Cousino, Joanna Martin and Bryan Evans led 99 Problems. Cousino put together two hits at the plate, an RBI and also threw two strikeouts from the mound. Martin and Evans helped from the plate as well as they combined for three hits, three runs, two RBIs and a double.

If you want to come out and support the Marysville Recreational Co-Ed Softball League, games are played every Sunday at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, at 3:30 and 4:45 p.m.
