Mariners batted first in a very short innings with 3 up 3 down. Cardinals kept Mariners on their toes having  7 safe hits in all directions, with Cardinals bringing in 10 runs.

Second innings Ben Campbell started Mariners batting off having a safe hit to left field along with Brodie O’Reilly having a great double bag hit to centre field scoring our first run of the game.

Third innings saw Dalton Haines start Mariners batting off with a safe hit to left field. Matthew Moore continued the batting with a double base hit to centre field, with Mariners next batter having a safe hit and bringing in 2 runs. Mariners forcing errors at important times helped gain another run over.

In response Mariners came out on top with 3 up and 3 down with no runs over.

Final win going to Cardinals 20-4

Pitching duties were shared between four players backed up well with catcher Stephen Pearson.
