ROUND 5

DIVISION ONE

Away v Sth District 5.11.22

WON 7-4

Danger game this one, playing one of last year's finalists at their home ground without two of our top players who were fronting for their Country in Japan. The game was not all plain sailing, and we used five pitchers in quick rotation to keep the Hawks at bay. We were never headed, getting a fine start courtesy of a Wade double in the second on which we were able to capitalise, but a home team homer sat us on our heels briefly until Troy N got the momentum going our way again and then Rackers grounded out to get Drew home and an error gifted us another, and a passed ball set us up for our seventh. Good enough for the win, but they tried in the last to catch our total - but no dice. The pitchers were - Tyson McKee, Joel Chapman, Cesar Perez, Troy Nicholson and Drew Janssen, and the hits were Drew Janssen, Callum Park 2, Troy Nicholson, Ethan Marchioro, Wade Moore 1. There were plenty of contentious moments throughout the entirety of the game, but we came away with the win in the end, so phew!


DIVISION TWO

Away v Sth District 5.11.22

Lost 2-5

An uncharacteristic loss this one - the first of the season. Joe Chapman went 3.2 innings relieved by Nathan Nicholson and both pitchers did their job, but Rhys was the star of the show with two rbi's in the fourth to nudge us into the lead, albeit briefly, as the home team lodged four which proved to be our downfall. Had a real chance in the next dig but left full bases out there, a golden opportunity gone begging. These guys will not take this lying down, they will be back with a vengeance next week out at Northern Districts. Hits : Todd Dunstall, Nick Kuhn, Mitch Fienemann (a fence rattler) 1.


DIVISION THREE

Away v Sth District 5.11.22

WON 4-2

Breandan and Rhys got us going with a run in the first, aided by some home team fumbling, which continued all game, and of course the return of crowd favourite Jimmy Chu cheered us all up. Rhys was having a day out with four rbi's (that made six for the afternoon), but we still left men on base far too often, We should have won by a lot more on the back of Tyson's superb five inning stint with eleven strikeouts and no hits for the first four. Joey Papps cleaned up at the end and the hits were : Harrison Kiss, Rhys Owen 2, Breanden Taheny, David Lodge (a cracker of a double - you should have seen him scamper) James Chu 1.

DIVISION SIX Had their colours lowered to the tune of 3-10 against GGCD. Some good performances and the hits recorded were : Aldo McCormack 3, Andrew Eime, 2, and one each to Flash, Lawrie Sinclair, Owen Williams, Casey Moore 1.


DIVISION SEVEN

Defeated Adelaide 9-0 and why wouldn't you be confident leading into the season proper with the pitching capabilities of Sully and Casey who both performed extremely well in the win. We scored heavily in the third and the sixth to shut them out and our hitting just gets better and better with the hits being : Cuz (he loves the high ones) 3, Sully 2, Watto ( Super bat), Nicko, Cam, China, Fitzy and Dorny* How are the knees mate*, that was a super effort to go the distance behind the plate after that surgery. Three votes !!


DIVISION EIGHT

Returned to the winners' circle with a one run win over East Torrens at Paynham. Sure to bring a smile to the face of Azza and his merry men - so deserved. Hits : Tony Tuttle, Shane Nicholson 2, Aaron Petros, Derek Milne, David Ding, Kim Hoong 1.Happy win 8-7.


WOMEN'S LEAGUE


DIVISION ONE

V Sturt at Don Klaebe Field 6.11.22

Draw 7-7

Not the result we were looking for after taking the season on and playing some terrific baseball early, but you have to take the good with the bad and suck it up.There were some fantastic highlights during the course of the game, namely Leah got Alyssa home after her long double, then SMack's two rbi's and Alyssa's hit gave us four for the dig, and while we were looking for one more, a prolonged rundown between third and home plate saw Darna face planting with no result. Amara tripled and got home on a passed ball, but with Darna reaching her pitching limit the opposition managed to sneak a draw. Bugga.. Three votes D. BoersVeen. Hits : Alyssa Lasscock 3, Darna BoersVeen, Leah Turner 2, Ash George, Amara Quinn. Sarah McMahon 1.


DIVISION TWO

v Glenelg at Don Klaebe Field 5.11.22.

Draw 5-5.

Had a terrific contest against the Bays at Don Klaebe Field and came away with a draw 5-5. Kristie threw three fine innings, backed up by Alice's powerful two inning stint - all the girls shone in a fine performance, and were really unlucky that the rub of the green at one stage favoured the visiting team. Plenty of good times ahead, and we want another crack at them.

JUNIORS

U15

Once again had a convincing win, this time against H & G to the tune of 23-1. Huge game on the footy oval, with the "man of the match" having to go to Indy with her final two innings shut-out - six strikes outs on the back of a nice double. All played their part and they have to now keep the momentum going.

U13(1)

Kept their season ticking along with a 14-11 defeat of Goodwood, with some outstanding performances. Firstly - a home run bomb by Jacob Atkinson (where was Tash?), and an in the park home run by the quick Chace Wallis who had two hits for the day, Anton Kumar had four, Remy Brooks, Max Schenk, and Jacob Atkinson had one each. Great catch by the birthday girl Kylah, thanks for the beaut cakes. U13 (2)

Travelled to Goodwood for the second time this season and actually got to play cause the rain was nowhere in sight! They started really well with Roni on the mound and pitching really well but unfortunately went down 15-3. Max hit a double past the cones, Eli in his first game had a hit and made a force out at third and Riley got a couple of hits. U11

They call this Minor League - nothing "minor" about these guys. They took on Goodwood and whilst they lost 2-9, they were terrific with Myles and Bohdi hitting well at the end to put a scare into the home side. U14

Last game of the day was v Kensington at Kensington went down 15-5. Remy and Dakota pitched well. Biggest highlight of the day was Luke stealing home and scoring the run - it brought a smile to everyone's face.
