ROUND SIXTEEN

DIVISION ONE Away vs Glenelg  -  Twilight Tue 28.01.20     

WON  3-2

The Bay's import started against our man Rhett Feser and it was a classic pitchers contest for four innings with nothing on the board, although we had left plenty out there in scoring positions.  Things changed in the fifth however after Rhys whacked one, Tom bunted to advance the runner, then they intentionally walked Gary and Ethan gladly knocked in a two RBI hit.  Wow - mistake number one. They got only one back next dig thankfully after loading the bases, when Rhett had to sit because he had reached his pitch count maximum. One more from the Tigers and it was a tied up ball game.  Gary took over from Rhett, and it was the last inning, and with us having two on base they decided to intentionally walk Troy, mistake number two, as his older brother Nathan lined one straight to shortstop who provided us with an error to score the run that they couldn't catch. You could tell that they were not happy - but them's are the breaks.  So two games to nil against Glenelg this season - does it get much better?  Hits:  Ethan Marchioro 2, Troy Nicholson, Nathan Nicholson, Wade Moore, Todd Dunstall, Rhys Owen, Jackson Sowton 1.


DIVISION ONE Away vs Nth Districts   

WON 3-2

The first six innings went scoreless, with not a lot happening in either camps.  There were a couple of highlights however, with Wade hitting two nice doubles and Callum Park taking a blinder, and of course Rhett was pitching well.  We got out of jail at one point having the Reds loading the bases, but thankfully they did not capitalise.  Both teams changed pitchers, and their guy couldn't find the glove and put a couple of runners on, so Rhys took advantage and got them both home, then Gary got him home for a three run lead, which was whittled down to one when one of their batters put one over with a man on base.  We had to hold them in the last which we managed to do for a win.  Hits: Gary Owens, Wade Moore 2, Troy Nicholson, Callum Park, Nathan Nicholson, Rhys Owen 1.


DIVISION TWO Away vs Nth Districts     

Draw 3-3

Jimmy Chu's return from holidays proved to be a bonus for us, as he ran in our first two runs after we had given the home side a three run start.  A definite highlight for us was Will Kortekaas taking over from Vic in the fourth innings in his first visit to the mound in over eighteen months, due to injury.  He threw two solid innings for no runs and a very handy pick-off at second  -  a fine start.  Jacko scored the second of Jimmy's runs, and Harry's hit brought Sam home to equalise.  Really, it's bit disappointing that we didn't win by a fair margin, given the way the game was played.  Still in the finals hunt.  Hits: Jackson Sowton 2, Troy Nicholson, Ryan Marsland, Harrison Kiss, Jimmy Chu 1.


DIV FOUR - Game was a washout and not a ball was thrown.


DIV SIX and DIV SEVEN both played in the rain at the Bay and had to contend with sloppy conditions and both lost in forgettable style; 1-11 and 3-17 respectively.


The WOMEN'S League barely got started before the gloom and rain forced the cancellation.  And it's a good thing too, as a lightning bolt jolted the Club shortly after, in a noise not heard of.  All the little kids who had finished training and were enjoying the slippery slide, soon came running into the safe arms of mum and dad.  Pandemonium abounded.  The girls are still in finals contention.


Under 11's had a very good win over Golden Grove 8-5, but the Under 13's lost to Adelaide 4-6, and the Peewees (Under 9) lost to Glenelg 24-25 in a highly entertaining affair.
