Junior League Match Report, 1st Dec 2018

What a game, with a walk off win for our Eagles Junior League team.

George was dominant on the mound, with 3 strikeouts and 2 pickoffs. He was well supported in the field by Aran at 3rd and Jake at short stop.  Julian’s first time pitching in u15s resulted in 2 strike outs, no earned runs and combined with Hamish for a nice caught stealing at home plate.

Strong hits by Julian, Connor and Jake with the rest of the Eagles rewarded with patience in the batter’s box.

With 14 stolen bases, including Hamish’s steal of home, kept the score line ticking over.

Tobey’s base running continues to improve with a stolen base and he placed plenty of pressure on the fielders. Regan was kept busy in right field chasing down hits and keeping the runners from advancing.

Bandits Tim, Elliot and Ollie combined to take the lead and put pressure back on our young Eagles. It all came down to the bottom of the last inning, needing 2 runs to win. Aran, Liam & Julian stayed calm, made it on base and Jake hit in the winning run to win 11-10.

Thanks to the coaches, parents and players from both sides for an entertaining game of baseball. Shout out to Jack, for coming down to support the team in his camouflaged cast. Special thanks to our umpires and amazing scorer J
