News from the Preliminary Finals

Better late than never hey?

Completely slipped my mind that I hadn’t done a round up of Prelim final day, my brain is heading into summer holiday mode already!

3 Preliminary finals were on in the park last Sunday, and while the final score blew out on a couple of the games they were fairly close for most of the 7 innings played.

The A grade final  saw Wingers Red taking on Eastern Raiders with Wingers eventually running out easy winners 20-11. It was a close tussle there for several innings but some big hitting saw Wingers take a lead and hold out the Raiders and grab themselves a shot at Panthers next week.

In A Reserve the Red Devils were attempting to redeem themselves for last weeks loss and to give themselves another shot at the Warriors in the grand final. They outplayed an under-performing Melb Uni Angels 19 runs to 13.

With two Melbourne Uni teams in B grade it was up to Monash to ensure they didn’t have a monopoly on the trophy. Smart batting and solid pitching by the Monash team saw them take the game 15 -8.

 

 

Join us this Sunday for our Grand Final Day – it promises to be a lovely day weather wise, and what better way to spend a sunny afternoon than in the park watching a talented bunch of women slog it out on the softball diamond.
