2021 Round 2 – 5th Grade Mariners

Shoalhaven Mariners 5th Grade travelled up to Dapto to take on the Panthers
at Hector Harvey Field. The conditions weren’t great but Mariners were there
to take on a much more experienced Dapto side.

The game didn’t start well for Mariners get their first three batters out.
Nice work in the field from starting pitcher Geoff Fulop restricted Panthers
to only 1 run.

The next time Mariners got to bat was a lot better with some nice hitting
and good pitch selection from the team allowed them to put 5 runs across the
plate.

Panthers responded with some nice hitting of their own taking a marginal
lead.

After that Mariners were only able to trouble the scorers one more time
where Panthers bats started to fire hitting the ball in all directions.

Pitcher Geoff Fulop battled hard on the pitching mound all game but Panthers
were just too good taking the game 20/6

Hits went to Andrew Smithson, Geoff Fulop, Perry Alpen and Chris Keith
