DMSC RIFLE TEAM COMES DOWN THE STRETCH ON A HOT STREAK
The Dormont-Mt. Lebanon Rifle Team continued to keep pace February 15 with a win against Clymer, Jason and Matt Piatt both firing 297. That avenged the previous loss to the boys from Indiana, and left the team at 9-4 — one match be- hind Murrysville.
DMSC controlled its own destiny. If it won against Murrysville at Murrysville the next week, it could force a tie for second place. The team might end up in a shoot- off or win a head-to-head tie breaker.
Well, if the first Murrysville match was pretty even (1476 to 1475), then the Feb- ruary 22 contest was as close as fuzz on a tick’s ear. The teams tied at 1475. When the scoring went to the off-hand tie breaker, DMSC found itself on top and in a second place tie with Murrysville. Ja- son Piatt and Fritz Hempelmann shot well off-hand and Dick Larry shot his highest kneeling of the year—97.
The streak continued into March. DMSC won at home against Allegheny, 1480- 1450, with Matt Piatt shooting his highest score in several years—299, and being backed up by Tom Gerner’s 298. This win, coupled with a Murrysville loss to Frazier, 1482-1477, put DMSC in sole possession of second place.
DMSC added another victory in its visit to Green Valley, matching the team’s high score for the year with a 1482-1454 win. Chuck Hutchinson shot a 289, his highest score of the year. As coordinator Dean Trew says, the team “is on fire” going into the match against Frazier-Simplex.
We’ll have the final coverage in next month’s issue.
