Chiefs beat Sharks 3-2 for second time


© St. Petersburg Times, published April 21, 2001

RIVERVIEW -- Chamberlain and Riverview split 3-2 games earlier this season. Friday in the Western Conference title game, the Chiefs recorded their second 3-2 win. If the teams keep winning, they could meet again in the regional final. "The next one is the one that counts," Riverview coach Angie Slater said.

"Chamberlain is a good club. We are like a couple of heavyweight fighters that just slug it out until someone wins."

The Chiefs scored once in the first inning and twice in the third for a 3-0 lead. The Sharks scored both of their runs in the sixth.

It was far from a pitcher's duel. Amanda Cody remained undefeated at 13-0, but Riverview got eight hits, including a two-run home run by Heidi Wendel.

Beth DiPietro gave up only five hits but dropped to 10-3. DiPietro gave up a solo home run to Cody in the third.

"It is hard to score a lot of runs against a team as good as Riverview," Chamberlain coach Bobby Diez said. "Our team is playing pretty well. They are more mature than last year, and their 26-1-1 record shows it.

"I like tough games like this. Our nine and another good team's nine and play ball."
