Concordes get it done in both games

November 30, 2022 BY

Concordes White avenged their first round loss with a resounding win in their game against Warriors, showcasing their batting prowess. In the first innings Aleesha Tucker starred with two safe hits, while Maddy Sutherland, Sam Brown and Karly Pearson all had one.

Warriors Bec White led from the front for her team with a huge three bagger, but safe hits were hard to come by for the team in blue. Sarah Polderman had a few great catches at left field in very difficult conditions with the wind complicating things for all.

Sam Brown started the second dig with a double, then Kate Altschwager and Linley Pollard followed with singles as well as a slap hit to Tucker. Concordes backed up their pitcher Karly Pearson with efforts in the field including a strong outfield catch by Altschwager to catch out Erin Chaplin, who pitched a solid game for her team.

The final innings saw a further six runs added by Concordes, while Bec White again had a safe hit for Warriors. Concordes finished the game in style with Sam Brown showing her skills at second base with two plays for two outs and Maddy Sutherland taking a ripping hard line drive catch at third base to end the game. In the other match Concordes United made it a good day for the club with a late win against Demons. It was very tight early, with neither team scoring in the first two innings, thanks to great pitching by Demons’ Billie Jones and returning player Montanna Millard, who slotted back in to the lineup without missing a beat.

Demons broke the deadlock first, with an RBI double to Em Hart scoring Eboni Smith. Hart was herself scored on a rare fielding error by United.

Concordes fought back in the fourth innings with a single to Lorrell Walker scoring Millard, with Walker coming home herself when disciplined batting by youngster Amber Lindquist saw her pick an walk with loaded bases.

At two-all the game was in the balance, but Concordes roared home in the last innings scoring 10 runs to seal the game 12-6, highlighted by a great bases clearing hit by Sarah Thomson.

Returning player Montana Millard starred with both bat and ball, recordingfour safe hits including three doubles, and only allowing three safe hits. Nashi McNamara also slotted in like she’d never missed a game.

Demons were kept in the game with beautiful catching by Em Heart and brilliant coaching and leadership from Kezia Feast.
