Another great weekend of baseball with double-headers continuing for Junior League teams, while the rest of the teams back to single games. The main diamond got a work out Friday night and Sunday having 4 games Div 5 through to Div 1. (image to use for hero )
Another fun weekend for the kids!
Windsor River Cats defeated the Carina Red Sox Cubs 24-20
The River Cats had another strong week at the plate and were able to outscore the Carina Red Sox cubs by four runs. The Cats also displayed some strong fielding recording three outs in two of the four innings.
Pine Hills Tomahawks defeated Windsor Royals Cubs 29-21
Fantastic hitting by the kids this week saw a high-scoring game. Unfortunatel, Pine Hills with a couple of big hitters and some great catches, were a little too good this week. Honourable mentions for this week’s MVP went to Sam R. showing some unbelievable ball skills to make a couple of difficult outs, and Sidney B. with his strong fielding. However Otis B. showed a lot of bravery putting his body on the line at first base with a collision against a larger opponent. His work with the bat was also very impressive. Player of the week was Otis. (photos Rookie ball/Cubs)
Little League Rams Red
LLR had a loss to Redcliffe Grey, Cruz and Huston got hurt a few times but kept getting back up and stayed in the game!
Little League Rams Blue
Royals Blue had a great game at Padres on Saturday. Ari took on the role as pitcher and did a great job. Well Done Ari! Ashton took a couple of wonderful catches with his hawk’s eye on the ball. The fielding, and the way this team is coming together, is tremendous. Congratulations to you all for such a great effort and tremendous team work! Keep it up and keep smiling!
Thank you to all our parents for helping out with getting the children to each game and encouraging them. It is great to see our parents cheering them on and being there for support.
Little League Bandits Red
November 11th Little League Bandits Red game against Pine Rivers Rapids at Rapids.
The starting pitcher came to me five minutes before first pitch complaining all the kayak paddling he had done at his school camp during the week had taken its toll and he was no chance of pitching after all, the rest, as they say, is history.
The boys did well with Charlie getting two hits, Bertie stroking a smooth double, Tim trying his hand at catching and Watson relief pitching.
We are looking forward to a home doubleheader series against the other Windsor team this weekend and I am looking to pitch a couple of the boys who have continued to show enthusiasm to take the mound and show us all what they have got.
Result a mercy-rule win to Rapids in four innings.
Little League Bandits Blue
Windsor Royals LL Bandits Blue Claims Victory Over Pine Hills 5-2
Windsor Royals LL Bandits Blue took on undefeated Pine Hills on Saturday in what was another great game of little league baseball.
Windsor Royals LL Bandits Blue notched three runs in the sixth inning. Windsor Royals Little League Blue batters contributing to the big inning included Remi W, Max S, and Tim A, who each had RBIs in the inning.
Will P got the start for Windsor Royals Little League Blue. He went two innings, allowing zero runs on one hit and striking out three; Parker L took the win going four innings allowing only one hit while striking out 9.
Deakin S, Remi, and Max M each managed one hit to lead the Royals; Lewis F scored twice.
Another double header weekend. Indians played host to JL Blue this weekend.
First game the team came out swinging and jumped to an early lead. Jock pitched well and shut them out for the three innings! Max and Gabby combined on the hill to finish off the game. Final score was 11-4.
With the lunch break between games it was hard to get started again. Giving Indians a lead in in the first the team came back slowly with runs scored in each innings Gabby hit in the 2 RBIs in the last to tie it up. With 2 out go ahead run on third, the strike zone grew a little and we weren’t able to finish with the win. Final score 5 all.
Junior League Red had a tough double header at Wests this week seeing our team draw the first game and drop the second.
A great big thank you to the parents who continue to contribute with scoring, umpiring and assisting in the canteen.
SL WR/Carina Rams.
The team looks like it is coming together. They got a close win over Bulldogs/Southern Stars. Final score 12-13. Well done!
The SL Bandits had an impressive 15-3 win over Carina on Saturday.
It was a good overall team effort, played in good spirits, with the developing team chemistry becoming more obvious each week.
In the pitching department, Lachie, Joel and Jacob combined to allow only one hit for the game.
Our defence has improved week on week, however we still recorded 3 errors and there were a couple of mental mistakes which we will work on further at training. Our fielding highlight was a nice unassisted double play from Cam at second base.
Our bats were strong, with Lachlan, Dom and Joel all recording multiple hits. On the downside, our situational hitting left a lot to be desired and this will be a focus at training this week. We saw some aggressive base running also, along with only one or two mental mistakes on the bases, which is an improvement on prior weeks.
MVP points this week went to Joel (4 runs, 2 hits, 2 walks, 1 RBI, 2 innings pitched for 1 run against, 1 assist) and Dom (who went 2 for 2 with a big double).
The team is looking forward to the double-header next week against Carina (again) and Wests.
Under 16 Senior League Rams
After winning on a forfeit last weekend the Royals/Redsox team was keen to win a second game.
With a slight rain delay in the first we went into the second innings with a 2-1 lead. Two great outfield catches from Bayden in CF and Braden in LF were among the highlights and what would be a game without a successful pickle from Lachie G!!
We paused for a minute’s silence at 11am with both teams on their respectful lines to honour our fallen in times of war. Lest we forget.
Wests/Southern Stars continued to go hard bringing in 6 runs and our team fought gallantly back to keep the lead after the second.
We held our lead at the bottom of the third only to have Wests/SS come back in the fourth. We needed 2 in for a win, dug deep and came away with a 13-12 win.
Great job to the team today, MVP points to Braden and Asher.

WR Red13 – Narangba 9. Ryan hit a double with 2 RBIs and a single. Ollie hit a single and a double with 2 RBIs . Adam hit a double and a single and stole 4 bases.
Div 3 took on a relatively young Redlands team in perfect conditions at Holloway field.
Ben Craig and Tyler McCluskey combined on the mound, both throwing extremely well with only one hard hit ball all day.
Unfortunately a lack of execution on whilst we were at the plate cost us the game as we took our first lost for the year going down 3-2. This is the loss that we “had to have” as a wake up call for the remainder of the season.
Thanks to Xavier and Joel McInnes for umpiring and as always thanks to our scorers, supporters and committee.
Windsor 21 – Ipswich 2

With a Grand Final replay, WR Div 1 beat Ipswich 6-1 on Friday nigh. Sunday was a little closer with the final score 8-4 with Royals coming out on top.
