All three teams were scheduled for a early game this week, fortunately the Dragons and the Raptors played each other, or not so fortunately for the Raptors as the score ultimately ended up very unflattering. The Raptors have been beset by injuries and player unavailability for most of the season and have yet not managed to jell (see what I did there? and I wasn’t even trying!). Hopefully the last few weeks of the season will see them pull together and get a few more wins on the board. The Dragons continued their strong run up the ladder, determined to knock the Angels from their perch. Dragons convincing winners over Raptors 20-0
The Angels took on Wingers Red in the shade of Diamond 5 and tight pitching from Molly and some great teamwork in the middle shut down the Wingers for 3 innings after they posted a few early runs. It was a tight game in the end with only 1 run separating the teams after 5 innings. The Angels managed to keep Wingers at bay taking it 6-5.
A double header for the Angels saw them back up for the 3pm against an in form Eastern Raiders team. A good start by the Angels saw them take an early lead, with Jess staring in the outfield for most of the game. The Raiders clawed back a few runs by the end of the third and saw themselves with a lead of 5 runs by the bottom of the fourth. The Angels however had other ideas, they’d clearly been hitting the batting cages as well as having had their Wheaties for breakfast as they came out late in the fourth and smashed 5 runs past the flagging outfield. A beautiful 2 base hit to left field from Megan resulted in 2RBI, as well as putting Brina on third who then took home base in a cheeky steal while the shortstop attempted the out at first. A great comeback for the Angels and they almost managed to snatch the win. Final score 7 a piece.
