Big Dogs through to Grand Final as Pittwater edge the Forest Brewers

It was a day for hitters but definitely not pitchers in the scorching heat at Aquatic Reserve as the Summer League finals got underway this afternoon.

In the Major Semi Final, the Big Dogs came out swinging to post a 9 run first inning and pile on a further 10 runs in the 2nd to blow out to a 19-3 lead. The Redbacks refused to give up, mounting a stunning comeback but ultimately falling short (20-17). The Big Dogs are through to the Grand Final.

In the Elimination Semi Final, the Forest Brewers gave up 7 first innings runs as the Pittwater bats also came out firing. A fine rearguard was mounted, but ultimately they left themselves too much to do, going down 8-6. Pittwater advance to the Elimination Final next week.

Join us at Aquatic Reserve at 2pm next Saturday as the Redbacks and Pittwater go head to head in the Elimination Final for the right to play the Big Dogs in the Grand Final.

Special thanks to the MWBU umpires who backed up after their junior finals commitments to work through the senior finals. Your efforts as always, are greatly appreciated.

Redbacks claim Minor Premiership in thrilling comeback

Congratulations to the Redbacks on claiming the MWML Summer League Minor Premiership.

The Redbacks team left their run late, scoring 11 runs in the last inning in their final game to take a 13-12 victory and clinch the top spot.

Good luck to all teams in the finals, commencing at Aquatic Reserve on Saturday, 24th February at 2pm.
