November 30, 2022 BY

Friday night saw the Tigers BaseballCclub take on Federals Demons with Tigers a real chance to extend its lead in second spot in the ladder for the season. With a full strength line up available for the first time this season, coach Karl Ransom went out all guns blazing to get the start they wanted. Jesse Foster was unbelievably good in his start on the mound giving up just one hit for the night to Federals. It was all runs and hits for Tigers with Tigers crossing the plate six times in the first innings to have the Federals in a state of shock. It continued from there with Matt Thompson, and Garrett Ha combining for 11 safe hits between them with the later getting two stand up triples for his night. Tigers had a whopping24 safe hits to just one for the evening and it resulted i a huge blow out victory Tigers taking the win 22-0 in front of decent crowd in beautiful weather. Garrett Ha with six hits, Matt Thompson with five and Jesse Foster lead the way for Tigers on a night to forget for the Federals side.

Saturday afternoon was another lop sided affair with Central taking the points in an easy game. Central young gun Koby Chant found some much needed form with the bat collecting three hits in which he stood up at third on two of them. Mitchell Cutting looked in control for Centrals on the mound giving South plenty to think about. Alex Ridding continued his impressive season and showed why at the half way point he should be right amongst the leaders of the Martieson Robertson Medal. His electric skills and pace continue to have the league on notice. South battled hard with Curtis Page again showing he will be a big time player with his rock could defence in the outfield and the young 14 year old boy is certainly holding his positing down. After seven innings it was all just too much for South with errors and lack of hits costing them, as for Central they continue to cement there place at the top of the ladder and send early warning signs they are out for redemption.
