It’s not exactly the Hatfields vs. the McCoys, but the Beacon College Annual Staff vs. Students kickball game always leads to competition kicked up a notch.
This year’s tilt, played earlier this month at the Beacon Athletic Field, proved (between nibbles of pizza) to be another hard-fought, good-spirited grudge match, with 16 staffers suiting up.
Sixty minutes later, the whippersnappers, er, students, snagged a close one 9-6.
“There were some great plays made by staff members in the outfield, but ultimately the students were still victorious,” said Beacon fitness director Steve McDaniels.
That’s the way the ball bounces.
