The Force was not with the Lady Sting as they played a double header against RTR in a field not far, far away, on May 4th. In the first game, the Sting took an early lead, scoring a run in the first inning. Later they racked up four more runs in the 6th inning. RTR battled back and scored five in the bottom of the 6th. They had scored two runs earlier, so after getting three outs in the top of the seventh they closed the game for a YME loss 6-7.
