Tuesday night, Aug. 17, was a great night for the six members of Bocci-lissome, the senior (70+) bocci team in River Forest.
Out of 12 teams this season, Bocci-lissome came in second place after a nail-biting game with Rolling Thunder. Bocci-lissome was very good … but Rolling Thunder was better.
Bocci-lissome was losing 7-2, then the comeback kids’ score (and I use “kids” loosely) began to climb slowly (just as slow as some of their members move).
They scored, one point at a time until they reached 12-7, when Rolling Thunder took first place.
Always spirited, sometimes animated and snappy, that’s the 70+ bocci team in River Forest. These seniors are proud of their accomplishment and have fun participating in the league thanks to their captain, Ann Hanson.
