The Morningside Translations Warriors destroyed Ginot Shomron 18-3 at Gezer Monday night to improve to 10-2 on the season and solidify their place atop the modified softball league’s standings.

The Warriors got off to a slow start before putting up a six-spot in the third inning and then blowing the game wide open with eight runs in the fifth.

Some sloppy defense kept the game close, but failing to score with two bases loaded twice, early in the game, took the wind out of Ginot Shomron sails.

Nossie Jacobovitch led the way offensively for the Warriors, going 3-for-3 with a homer and five RBI’s. Chaim Schon led off the fourth with homer, his third game in a row with a long ball and his sixth homer in the last five games.

Yanky Itzkowitz went 3-for- 3, scoring four times and Simon Pack also collected three hits for the Warriors.

With the victory, the 2009 champions secured their second consecutive double-digit winning season with two games still remaining on the schedule.
