Western Metropolitan Region Intermediate Boys Baseball Finals
We had an early start to the day with good weather, for the Western Region
Finals in Geelong.
Our pool matches were with Sunbury Secondary College and Taylors Lakes Secondary College.
Connor Garvin pitched a solid outing in game one keeping Sunbury to 2 hits and 2 runs while striking out 5.
We hit consistently through the line up with Wil Swidryk, Max Taylor and Peter Cook leading the way with multiple hits bringing home 8 runs for a 8/2 win over 3 innings.
In our second pool match Taylors Lakes offered some opposition with some solid hitting. Wil and Hunter Newton pitched, leading us to a 11/1 win. Peter Cook, Jack Warwick and Connor Garvin led the hitting contributing to our 11 run tally.
The final against Maribyrnong Sports Academy (MSA) was a pitcher-dominated game with both team's hitters struggling to make good contact. McLeod Sell restricted MSA to 5 hits in 4 innings while striking out 5. We scored 3 runs from walks and hits from Brodie Wise, Max Taylor and Peter Cook. Their winning runs come from a mishit off the handle and some close calls and the boys end up runners up on the day.
Good work from all 10 boys and Connor Dawson our Baseball Captain.
