2014 Metro League Finals Wrap Up

Dragons2014September was a busy month on and off the diamond so our apologies for not ensuring there were weekly match reports done once the finals started.

I’m sure everyone has found out the results by now but just in case you haven’t, here’s how the pointy end of the season went down

Week 1

  • A Grade:  Angels had the week off
  • A Res Grade: Dragons had a strong 9-1 win over Wingers Blue to book themselves a Grand Final berth
  • B Grade: Raptors lost to Wingers Red in a great (and tight) game 9-10

Week 2

  • A Grade:  Angels fought it out against Eastern Raiders for a Grand Final spot but couldn’t overcome the strong hitting of the young Raiders going down 3-24
  • A Res Grade: Having secured their place the previous week the Dragons had the week off to plan their assault
  • B Grade: Another close game for the Raptors going down 9-13 to the more experienced Warriors

Grand Final

The Dragons continued their good form and managed to hold a lead against a strong comeback from the Red Devils taking the game out 7-6

In non softball related news, Kira, Aaron and Archer welcomed their latest addition the evening before the Grand Final, a healthy baby boy they’ve named Atticus. We expect we’ll be seeing him in the park next season once Kira gets herself ready to suit up behind the plate once more.

Congratulations to everyone on a great season.
