Game description by Andrew Weller below.
Our lovely Lassies played in the big one today against the powerhouse Women’s club Springvale.
It was tight early with both teams playing quality finals baseball. After 2 innings the scorers were tied up 1 all. In true Waverley spirit our champion ladies took it to another gear plating 4 in the 3rd & 5 in the 4th while shutting Springvale down. We went on to win 11 – 4 over 6 innings.
Alexis Smith was outstanding again today pitching the whole game. Mary-Anne Palatsides was just as impressive behind the dish controlling the hitters & directing the traffic. It was fitting that the final out was a strikeout.
Our hitting was a team effort today with everyone hitting safely. A special mention to Lucinda McGrath’s 10 pitch walk in the 3rd & Jenna’s base running with a game high of 4 stolen bases.
Congratulations ladies on a great year!
Personally I would like to thank Terina Stokes for her assistance on the bench keeping me from passing on my nerves to the players & her great guidance.
Thank-you scorer: Con
Thank-you bat girls: Maddi, Zarli, Bella, Bec, Caryss & Zizi.
