A-Grade Round 3: Raiders 8 d Glen Waverley 0
This week we welcomed back Ilsa Wakeling and Justine Smethurst and their
return was timely given reduced player availability in November due to
VCE and Uni exams.
Ilsa got the start and showed very impressive velocity and control
giving up no runs, 1 walk and striking out 8 in 4 innings of work.
While at times Ilsa over powered the opposition, she was well supported
by our defence – namely Emma at Right and Nat at Short.
In addition to Ilsa’s impressive start, highlights of the game were a
pair of 2-run home runs to Nat Titcume and Lauren Daykin, the latter
clearing the Left Field fence by about 30 feet. Nat went an impressive
3-3 with 4 RBI’s. In addition to the power hitting our short game was
again very good.
Justine came on and closed out the game striking out the side in one
inning of work.
Again the blend of youth and experience was very pleasing with all
players contributing to the 8-0 result. We look forward to a double
header next Saturday against Falcons and Syndal.
HITS: Titcume 3 (Home Run), Daykin 1 (Home Run), Smethurst 1, Bell 1,
