LEAGUE - BOBCATS
After a thrilling pair
of semi-finals the top two teams at the end of the regular season
squared off to determine the U12 domestic league champion for
Due to a rain out the previous week,
both teams had to overcome stiff opposition in the first of the
double header games to have a shot at the title. In Semi final 1,
the Bobcats advanced over the Pythons due to outstanding pitching by
Lachie Burke, solid defence and a last inning 2 run homer by Oliver
Dunn. The Rattlers showed tremendous team spirit in Semi final 2,
to stage a great fight back against the Adders, winning after being
8 runs behind.
In the final, both
teams were tested for depth and it was great to see all players
grabbing their opportunity producing some outstanding defensive and
offensive baseball. The Bobcat hitters broke out the big bats in
the third and fourth innings culminating in 2 four run rallies. A
double to Charlie Schilling down the leftfield line, great base
running by Cal Grant and long home run to right field by Justin
Burke led the way.
All four teams should
be congratulated on the standard of play – a great day of baseball
for the Waverley Baseball Club.
