Beachcomber grabs early league lead at 2-0


NAIA All-American decathlete Joe Dotson dashed around the bases in Wednesday's opening games.

Beachcomber put down a marker as the team to beat in the renamed Miller League Softball (formerly the Florence Softball League) with a pair of opening-night wins at Miller Park.

Beachcomber beat Welton Construction, 22-13, and Lofy Construction, 34-1, to move atop league standings at 2-0.

Welton rebounded with an 18-14 win over ACC. ACC opened with a 36-4 victory over Lofy.

Next Wednesday, it's Lofy vs. ACC and Welton vs. Beachcomber in the 5:30 p.m. games and ACC vs. Beachcomber and Lofy vs. Welton in the 7 p.m. games.

The adult-level league has a nine-week run, featuring doubleheaders at the North and South fields at Miller Park on Wednesday night.
