ROUND NINE

DIVISION ONE

Twilight Away v Adelaide 15.12.20 Lost 1-2

A very winnable game at the Adelaide Baseball Club's impressive new facility was lost when we recorded only two safe hits for the evening, both to the red-hot Wade Moore. The boys got bat on ball enough, but picked out their men monotonously. We went into the sixth at one each, and after Ethan walked, Wade hit and stole along with Ethan, and Troy was intentionally walked, we were in the perfect position with the bases all filled up, got a bit excited, but did not trouble the scorers. Pity. Joel went the distance in a fine performance from the hill, and Craig took four ripper catches at left field. One that got away.

Away v Goodwood 19.12.20 Game one of double header Lost 0-7 Will was on the mound and made a very good start, keeping their heavy bats under control for the first couple, but by weight of numbers, they started to get on top and popped a couple over to go to a lead, before DChap relieved and put the brakes on. Our batters weren't helping the situation either by not really contributing, and runs were not forthcoming. The difference in this game was purely the offence of the Indians, as there were no errors to add to the score line. Hits: Troy Nicholson, Craig Abbott, Brayden Marchioro 1.

Away v Goodwood 19.12.20 Game two of double header Lost 3-5 We were in with a real chance leading in the fifth 3-2, but couldn't go on with it. After we had tied it up in the third following a Wade double, an Ethan walk and a Troy RBI it was game on, and when Muggsy smacked one and scored two, it was looking the goods, but the home side steadied and put on three to win. Joel once again pitched his heart out in 5.1.digs, and the hits were: Wade Moore 2, Ethan Marchioro, Troy Nicholson, Ryan Muggleton, Daniel Chapman, Andrew Chapman, Todd Dunstall 1.

DIVISION TWO

Away v Goodwood 19.12.20 WON 6-3 Two outstanding performances in this game - Tyson Hancock's complete game from the mound in which he didn't put a foot wrong, and Daniel Chapman's mastery of the bat with two, two run dingers to ice the game. Early we were the lucky recipients with runs coming from an error riddled couple of innings by the opponents, but all honours go to the aforementioned duo. Hits: Todd Dunstall, Daniel Chapman (2HR) 3, Ryan Muggleton 2, Richard Olson 1.

DIV FIVE

Played Golden Grove at Don Klaebe field but unfortunately didn't improve on their win/loss ratio.

DIV SIX

Played at home against Adelaide and ran out winners 5-4. With nice hitting from the King, Cuz, Sully and Cam and really good solid pitching by Marso, the game came down to the wire and it was left to Flash to run in the winner and walk off. The Victorian recruit blotted his copybook somewhat by striking out not once, not twice but three times. Sorry Fitzy.

DIV SEVEN

Also took on Adelaide at home and lost to a side above them on the ladder. But no big deal, the boys are having a great season and are giving it a good shake. Casey pitched all game, and the hits were: Casey Moore, Nick McCormack, Brad Atkinson 2, Derek Milne, Lawrie Sinclair, Shane Lodge, Tim Fawcett 1.

WOMEN'S LEAGUE

Good to see the girls back in the winner's circle after a couple of weeks of uncharacteristic losses, with a one run win over Southern Districts 12-11. Dana threw well and was ably backed up by the batters, namely Sarah McMahon, Carly Moore and Kensi St.George with two each. Kensi told me she notched up a triple, so knowing Kensi, I had to get it confirmed, and blow me down, she did. Good on ya.

Once again, the Junior teams played all over the place this week, and on various days with mixed results.

MINOR LEAGUE (U11)

Only played the one game, a beauty against a higher ranked opponent and beat them 5-2 in a contest that saw really improving pitching from Archie, Remy and Chase, who took a blinder of a catch that will be remembered for a while. Catching duties are on the up as well, as Remy, Luke and Anton displayed, and the batters had a good day with Chase and Remy both hitting twice, and Anton, Felix, Luke, Hugo and Owen all chipping in for one each.

LITTLE LEAGUE (U13)

The Senators team took on Henley & Grange on Friday night and began like a house on fire, streaking into a good lead with Vince and Dakota getting the job done with the bats. Ollie was looking good on the mound, but unfortunately our lead was whittled away and we lost 11-12.

The Woodville team played at home on Sunday against Golden Grove and were defeated 7-15 in a really good encounter, in which Tucker, Noah and Indie all played well.

JUNIOR LEAGUE (U15)

Played two games for the week, both away and were beaten by Port on Wednesday evening 6-13, and lost to top team East Torrens on Sunday.
