ROUND SEVENTEEN

DIVISION ONE     Twilight away v East Torrens 4.02.2020     

Lost 1-5

Nothing much happened for the first three and a half innings with both defences holding sway, but we blinked in the bottom of the fourth and provided them with a couple of walks and a couple of errors which turned into a four run inning.  That's all it took, as the rest of the game was tightly fought with only one run each.  We tried to bridge the gap, and played some good solid baseball, but let ourselves down at times, especially with our sixth at bat only lasting four pitches.  The Redsox are finals contenders, and on that showing, we are not a million miles behind them.  Hits :  Troy Nicholson, Todd Dunstall, Tom Dineen.  Gary shared the pitching duties with Nathan.  A little luck wouldn't have hurt either, with Rhett caught on the fence and Troy hitting the top of the fence  -  oh well.


DIVISION ONE     Away v Sth Districts 9.02.20     

WON 8-5

A very satisfying win against a side that is struggling a bit, but shows a lot of fight.  We were never headed all day after scoring in the first and putting on four more in the fourth thanks to Rhys and Tom loading the bases.  A couple of walks helped, but the locals rallied and scored a couple when we had a very sloppy inning, thankfully our only real blemish for the day.  Rhett came out in the sixth and Will gave a little cameo performance, before Gary closed.  Jacko came into the game with immediate impact, and got Nat home with head's-up base running, then scored a triple and came home on Harry's sac fly.  Hits  :  Ethan Marchioro 3, Gary Owens, Nathan Nicholson 2, Jackson Sowton, Callum Park, Troy Nicholson, Rhys Owen, Tom Dineen 1.



DIVISION TWO     Away v Sth Districts 9.02.20     

WON 9-5

Tight game, very close all day with a three run bomb by Troy Nicholson in our last inning proving to be the clincher.  Troy also pitched four solid innings after Ash hurt his arm, and we had good contributors in the batting box all day.  A pleasing aspect was base running, which has really picked up of late.  Hits  :  Todd Dunstall, Will Kortekaas 2, James Chu, Troy Nicholson (HR), Harrison Kiss, Jarrod Marsland 1.


DIV FOUR had a closeish game against East Torrens but didn't get the chocolates. 


DIV SIX and DIV SEVEN both played at home and both lost to Golden Grove, with the Sixers still in the finals hunt and winning the last few games are a must.  In the sevens' game Noel Watson, Derek Milne, Aaron Petros, Casey Moore and Tim Russell all had a hit each.


No Womens' game this week.


Under 17's  -  Missed them last week, but can report that they had a loss to Henley and Grange 3-10 with Owen Williams collecting two hits and Aldo McCormack one, then a washout, and then another loss 5-7 to top side Sturt in what their Coach described to me as an undisciplined display.  Harrison Kiss had two hits, and Cody Tape, Blake O'Brien and Owen Williams had one.  Still sitting third on the ladder, but can't afford many more losses before the playoffs.


U13 went South and narrowly lost, but the U11 boys and girls had a nice win over Southern Districts 8-2 to sneak a bit further up the ladder.
