Need a bit of training but all the kids had fun!
WR Rookie River Cats completed four innings with a tie score against the Carina Raptors, 24 to 24.
WR Cubs had a great second game of the season defeating the Carina Sluggers 20-16. The kids all came out swinging with the tee only being used once or twice – a big improvement in just one week!
Lachlan Pawsey was this week’s player of the week having hit a double on his first AB and making some stellar outs; picking one out of the dirt at first base to make a critical out and fantastic heads-up baseball at second base to tag a Slugger out when he realised no one was covering the bag.

Parker Lovering made his inaugural appearance on the mound and shut out the Padres with two dominant innings including 4 strikeouts.

The victory marks the second straight win for the Major Blues!
JL Blue played Wests Bulldog. Taking time to adjust to pitching speed, it took the team a couple of innings to time the slower ball and get a roll on, but finished off the game with good solid hitting.

Notable hitting was from Jordan Durbrige this week.
