ROUND ONE

DIVISION ONE at HOME v Glenelg 11.10.20

Lost 4-5

The long awaited season kicked off with Joel Chapman on the mound powering them down to his brother Andrew with Daniel at first and Ryan Muggleton positioned at third - certainly a different look from previous seasons. There was also a strange feeling in not seeing the familiar face of Gary Owens at centre-field, stuck in Germany due to Covid restrictions.  We scored in the first, with some handy hitting from Muggsy, Daniel and Abbey, but held the ascendancy only briefly and went into the third tied away, and the Bay's bats came good to score three, but we hung in and got a couple back when Muggsy belted a double and Troy scored him.  Joel sat down after 6.2 solid innings - job well done - and Will Kortekaas took over and looked the goods.  We had a chance in the last only being one down but a tricky double play at the death put paid to our chances.  The new look is great, and the narrow loss was a bit of a disappointment, but these boys will be right in it this year, with twelve hits from our strong batting line-up being a good solid start, and Josh Tols raring to go from the hill.  Hits: Troy Nicholson 3, Ryan Muggleton, Nathan Nicholson, Andrew Chapman 2, Daniel Chapman, Craig Abbott, Wade Moore 1.

DIVISION TWO At HOME v Glenelg 11.10.20     

Lost 6-7 Another good game of baseball, with new to the Club Tyson Hancock pitching, Mitchell Fienemann at third, and an assortment of familiar faces making up the rest of the team.  Bays scored early but we pegged them back and it was anybody's game until one of their guys put one over to give them a clear lead.  They walked us in a run and Mitch's little chopper scored us two and we were one behind going into the last, but, as in the Div One game, we couldn't get that vital run.  Onwards and upwards - Tyson showed terrific form for his four digs, and the hitting and defensive work was of a pretty high standard.  Hits: Todd Dunstall 3, Mitchell Fienemann, Rhys Owen, Tom Dineen, Harrison Kiss 1.

DIVISION FIVE 

Played Glenelg at home and got the season up and running, but the power hitting of the Bays was too much, and Doggie, Owen and Dave, try as they did, couldn't stem the flow and we went down 1-19 with Sean Flintoff getting the only hit.

DIVISION SIX

Port got in front early and we managed to sneak back into the game and were one behind, but a line drive up the middle put a dampener on that and we recorded a 2-5 loss.  Troy Kortekaas and Behr shared the pitching duties and the hits were Nick McCormack 2 and Troy Kortekaas 1.

DIVISION SEVEN

One bad inning in defence was all it took to lose to Port 4-10, and the rest of the game was an even affair.  Some absentees from this game will make a difference next week and beyond.  Brad Atkinson and Aaron Petros pitched with Aaron and Shane Lodge getting two hits each, and Derek Milne, Brad Atkinson, Cam Britcher and Tim Fawcett one.

JUNIORS This season we have a team in Under 15 (Juniors) combined with the West Torrens Club, two Under 13 teams (Minors), and a Little League (Under 11) team, as well as a side in the Peewee League.  We look forward to some success from these teams and hope that the kids and parents have many enjoyable times.


GODANATS!
