Round 20 – Seniors Minor 3rd Grade

On Sunday Shoalhaven Mariners Minor 3rd grade team travelled to Cringila Park at Cringila to play Wollongong Cardinals 4 C team.

This ended to be a very long and painful game with Mariners certainly making a boom for their last game of the season.

Mariners batted first with Tony Burgess and Ben Quiney having a safe hit each to the outfield along with some batters getting on from a walk , bringing in 4 runs. In response Mariners didn’t perform in the field at all with Cardinals bashing the ball all over the park, with Cardinals having 17 safe hits in a long first innings bring in 24 runs.

Second innings saw both teams score less in a quick turnaround for both sides. Mariners came out to field a new team in a very quick innings having Cardinals 3 up and 3 down. Score line now 24-4

Third innings saw Tony Burgess have another safe hit out to right field and batting in our only run. In return Cardinals had 3 safe hits managing to bring over 2 runs.

Fourth innings Kalysta Palmer had Mariners only safe hit although unable to bring any runs home. Cardinals out right winners 26-5

Pitching duties shared between Tony Burgess and Ben Quiney both backed well by catcher Kalysta Palmer.

Well done on a great season for all who played in this grade with everyone going beyond their personal best. Great Job !
