Final results 2014 season


 
Club Championship 4th place
 
1st grade – finished in 5th position.
The last game of the regular season saw our 1st grade team drop out of final 4 contention, narrowly being pipped – by 0.6% !- into 5th position for the year. This was a tough result given how close games were during the year. Marrickville went on to win the premiership beating Hawkesbury 4-1.
 
2nd grade – finished in 3rd position.
Our 2nd grade team, the defending champion, finished the minor round in 3rd position, and was then knocked out of contention with a surprise 9-0 loss against 4th placed Hawkesbury in the semi-final. This result really shows how important it is to finish in the top 2 in any competition. The game started with a nervous 1st inning in which a number of our errors let the opposition get off to a flying start, plating 3 runs.  From there, we were not able to regain composure, and the expected high quality play did not flow from our players. The Hawkesbury team played very well and were aggressive from the start, hitting well at the right moments of the game. Because the semi-finals were washed out, Hawkesbury did not progress further, and Petersham won the grand final, beating Marrickville 9-0.
 
3rd grade – Minor Premiers. Finished in 3rd position after finals series.
The 3rd grade team was unable to continue its winning ways losing the preliminary final 9-3 to a Petersham team which found sparkling form in that first final. The good form we’d seen through the season - which gave this team the top position on the ladder - deserted it during the finals.  Because it was the Minor Premier, our team had a second chance but failed to capitalise on the opportunity, losing 6-4 to Hawkesbury in a rain truncated game. Hawkesbury went on to beat Petersham 7-1 in the grand final.
 
4th grade –
The 4th grade team in the Pacific Coast league really built on its strengths, skills, and concentration during the season. While the team ended in 3rd place, it was just 1 game behind the 1st placed team, Greenway. The final game of the season saw an emphatic 15-9 win against Greenway, being its second defeat of the top team for the season. The semi-final against the second placed team, West Sydney Boomers, was close fought, but we lost 4-3, after letting in early runs and running out of time chasing. The grand final was a washout giving Greenway the gold medal due to its Minor Premiership position. This had been a very close season and the learning from this year is that early games have to be won to provide that small buffer at the end of the season.

Finals series 2014

 

1st grade

The last game of the regular season saw our 1st grade team drop out of final 4 contention, narrowly being pipped – by 0.6% !- into 5th position for the year. So, our first graders will now be busy leading the supporters’ camp for our 2nd and 3rd grade grand final bids.

 

2nd grade

Unfortunately, our 2nd grade team, the defending champion, was knocked out of contention with a surprise 9-0 outcome against Hawkesbury at Petersham on Sunday morning. The game started with a nervous 1st inning in which a number of our errors let the opposition get off to a flying start, plating 3 runs.  From there, we did not seem to be able to regain composure, and the expected high quality play did not flow from our players. The Hawkesbury team played very well and were aggressive from the start, hitting well at the right moments of the game.  They now play Marrickville in the semi-final, with Petersham going straight into the Grand Final.

 

3rd grade – come along and support the Sydney University baseball team as it tries to save its Championship position, at Petersham Oval, at 1pm on Saturday 16 August, playing the second semi final against Hawkesbury

The 3rd grade team was unable to continue its winning ways against a Petersham team which found sparkling form moving in to the first final. This game was a 1v2 showdown, but the closeness of the games during the year was not reflected in but the 9-3 result of this rather one-sided affair. The good form we’ve seen through the season which gave this team the top position on the ladder, seemed to desert it on Saturday.  The boys will have learned from this experience and will be ready to lay everything on the line in this do-or-die final.

 

4th grade – Playing the first final at Tregear starting at 2pm for a 2 hour 15 game

The 4th grade team in the Pacific Coast league has really built its strengths, skills, and concentration during the season. While the team ended in 3rd place, it was just 1 game behind the 1st placed team, Greenway. Last week’s final game of the season saw an emphatic 15-9 win against Greenway, being its second defeat of the top team for the season. However, the team has only managed two draws - 7-7 and 8-8 -  against the second placed team, West Sydney Boomers, who we play in this first final on Saturday. The game this Saturday is at Tregear and is a do-or-die affair, and we need to find a way of manufacturing a winning run if it goes again to a tight fought draw.
