Busy couple of days for the Masters A team with two games in three days against top teams Blackburn and Waverley. Saturday at Blackburn was a solid hit out for the extended line up where we welcomed David White to the team, whilst having special guest appearances from Hondo, John Cav and Gary Arthur. Four all game with half an hour to go but unfortunately some simply weird calls and average hops let us down and Blacky strung some runs together to start their 75th Anniversary celebrations at our expense. Damo was once again strong with the bat.
Backing up against the new All-Star Waverley line up with Rookies including Troy O’Connor, Brett Caulfield, Ben Smith and Leo Vivona, we flew through eight innings with Whitey throwing a great four innings before handing the ball to DaveK. Zero all after five innings before Waverley got a few on base and a couple of untimely errors let a couple through. We hit back with Whitey collecting his second hit to score DaveK before getting caught trying to stretch a long single into a double… Tough 3-1 loss considering we have played better this year but we will fight back. Week off next week to rest up and come back with vengeance against Springvale (away).
