ROUND SEVENTEEN

DIVISION ONE

Home at Don Klaebe Field v GGCD 23.02 21 Twilight

Lost 2-4

Troy Nicholson put in his best performance on the mound for the season thus far, starting and running out of pitches in the seventh, having put thirteen strike-outs behind him. Game was one all on his departure, and he was stiff not to get the W, with the visitors scoring three in the last. We got our first in the fifth on the back of aggressive base running, and another in the last after Nat hit to get Muggsy home. All in all, our bats didn't get on top of their starter and Nat Nicholson had three hits, Troy Nicholson and Daniel Chapman had one each.

DIVISION ONE

Away at GGCD Sunday 28.02.21

WON 9-4 In a strange programming quirk, we again had to play GGCD. This time we reversed the result and tipped them out of contention for finals, and quietened their rather raucous bench at the same time. Joel took to the mound, and put in a beauty, getting his well deserved win at the end and getting a bit drenched for his trouble. After Todd audaciously stole home in the first and DChap got Cesar home, the Dodgers equalled, but in the third Wade got on base and Cesar scored him and Troy put one out into the street for two more. Nothing for a few innings, and both Clubs put in their relievers - in our case it was Josh Tols who threw three quality innings with no hits, but we took advantage of their man in the seventh, when Cesar hit, and Wade scored on a passed ball, and we got another after a balk, another from a hit batter, and totaled four for the dig. A comprehensive win, with the hits being: Todd Dunstall, Cesar Perez 2, Wade Moore, Troy Nicholson (HR), Daniel Chapman, Ryan Muggleton 1.

DIVISION TWO

Away v GGCD Sunday 28.02 21

WON 9-4 Coincidentally the same score-line. Doesn't matter - it's a win. The Fireman was on the mound for the first three, and put in his best performance for the year. However, he excelled with the bat, and in the first two digs both he and Brayden were batting one thousand, with numbers one and two both hitting the bases. The game was poised at two all until the sixth, when with two out, Marso crucially batted Harry in, Carly walked, Mitch and Brayden both hit again, Rhys stood in the way of a pitch and we bolted away. Four in the next and it was all over, and with Tyson relieving in grand manner, we got the win. Hits: Brayden Marchioro 4, Mitch Fienemann 3, Jimmy Chu 2, Rhys Owen, Jarrod Marsland 1.


DIV FIVE

Just couldn't crack it for a winning game, losing 3-21. Some of the boys got great experience from the season, and hopefully will put it to advantage in the coming years.

DIV SIX

An absolute pleasure to be able to say that they will be starting their finals campaign next week. Marso got them home with a winning performance from the middle, ably backed up by his miserly defence in a fine 15-8 win over Southern Districts. Hits : Fantastic to see Cam Britcher with three including two doubles (legs were pumping), and Tim Fawcett also three, Nick McCormack got two that also featured a triple, Bret Teakle got a couple as did James Stradling, and Troy Kortekaas got one. Go get 'em boys.

DIV SEVEN

Unfortunately season over for these boys, going down to the Hawks 8-14. Had a rough chance of making finals until a few weeks ago. But the game was important for a couple of reasons - namely Shane Lodge's 400th game and Keith Mortimore's swansong. What can you say about these two? Shane has overcome adversity to get to where he has got to, and Morty has played his final game at age 80. Both efforts of which to be enormously proud. Hits in this game: Shane Lodge 2, Aaron Petros, Derek Milne, Casey Moore, Noel Watson, Tim Fawcett, Laurie Sinclair, Shane Lavida 1.

WOMEN’S LEAGUE

Two games for the girls this week, firstly a trip to Sturt on Monday evening for a win against the Saints 9-5 with Darna getting the win and Carly hitting three times, Leah and Catie twice, and Darna, Kenzi and Megan once each.

Game two was at home base where the atmosphere was great again, and the girls put on their best display to defeat Goodwood 18-1 in a confidence boosting win leading into next week's finals. Carly brained them from the middle, and the hits were: Carly Moore, Leah Turner, Darna Veen, Rachel Coutie 3, Carol Ryan 2, Sarah McMahon. Alyssa Lasscock 1. Go get 'em girls.


JUNIOR LEAGUE

Last game for the season and the boys put on a good one with Toby pitching a couple of great innings for a 7-3 win against the Redsox, with good all round at bats and tight defence capped off by a terrific catch by Lachy.

LITTLE LEAGUE

The much anticipated showdown between the Woodville side and the Senators turned out to be a big win for the Senators 20-4. The game was played in good spirit with good performances from both parties. Names to come to mind are Jacob, Will, Caleb, Bohdi, Ollie, Alice, Dakota, Ollie, Vincent and Jack. Players all contributed and pleasingly, the Senators make their way to the finals. The improvement made by all players was marked, and a big thank-you, as always, to the Mums and Dads for their input.


MINOR LEAGUE

Also on their way to a finals campaign with a come from behind win over top team Dodgers 6-5. Archie, Chace and Remy were excellent, pitching us to the win, with Chace, Archie, Remy, Hugo and Anton hitting well. Home final next week. Go gang !!
