So close!!!!!!

So close!!!!!!

Our team in the Melbourne Softball Association came so close! Minor premiers and runners-up! An impressive first season in the winter competition.

The grand final had it all. It was cold, wet, windy and sunny. A slow start for Raiders, a big comeback and disappointment. Oh well! Some coaches take full advantage of the rules. As one of the players called it “that was victory by stalling”.

Claire and the girls and their supporters displayed great team effort to finish so close. It takes fortitude to get through a season at Fawkner Park – it’s softball versus the elements – good job ladies!!

    So close … you are all winners in my eyes.

    Some of the great moments – Jess’ catch in the outfield … Bec & Emily’s double-play at right & first … Sam’s short slide into home – good thing she knocked the ball out of the catcher’s glove. But in particular – you came back from 10 runs down and nearly clinched it. Congratulations!

    And congratulations to Maddie, Sam & Rhiannon for being named in the MSA B Division 2011 All Stars Team – well deserved!
