After a narrow escape last night we can breathe a small sigh of relief as we are out of the relegation zone for the moment. With Tornados beating the Raiders last night they didn't do us any favours as it is still possible for them to avoid relegation, especially if they beat us. As Tom … Continue reading MUST. WIN. GAMES!!
It's been a long time since the last post when Pirates topped the league with 3 wins out of 4 row at the beginning of the season. A mercy at the hands of the Raiders saw the beginning of the losing streak with heavy losses against the Badgers (9-28), Meteors 3 (8-23) followed by the one … Continue reading Mixed fortunes for the Pirates
Following a tight game against the Meteors last week it was time to let loose against the re-promoted Knights. Last year we fared well against them with a home and away victory but as we know all too well in softball you can never underestimate your opponent (anyone remember losing twice to an awful Hampstead Heat … Continue reading Pirates kick Knight arse!
We all know the game against the Cheetahs was not our best to the point that it was not even mentioned in the blog. What was important that we bounced back against a strong and undefeated Meteors team away at Finsbury Park. Once again the guys were notorious in their absence with Chris on his … Continue reading Pirates bounce back with win over Meteors
After a solid win against the Kamis last night the Pirates were officially promoted to Div 4 softball! It's been a long time in coming after spending 3 seasons in Minors 2 league especially after coming third for the past two seasons. It looked as if our campaign for promotion was close to collapse after … Continue reading Pirates officially promoted!!
After a thrilling came against the Tigers last night the Pirates came back from a 12-1 mauling after the 1st innings to win the game 26-25 in the 7th innings. It looked as if the Tigers were going to seriously dent our promotion chances as they batted their way through and forcing mistakes in the field. … Continue reading Pirates on verge of promotion!
Unlike D1 last week the Gods had been kind to us this tournament with the sun out and the temperature reaching a balmy 22 C. The suntan lotion was on by 9.30 and the beers out for 11am. Certainly couldn't ask for better weather or location in Old Deer Park, Richmond. Despite having approximately 18 … Continue reading Firstball May 2014- Pirates knocked out at semi finals
Following the Parrots huge win last week confidence was certainly high in the team. The Parrots took and early lead to go 7-2 up after the 2nd innings but then failed to build on that. Being an experienced team Banditos were able to capitalise on that, especially in the 7th innings where they scored 6 and … Continue reading Game 2: Pirates flourish, Parrots flounder
Whilst the Parrots couldn’t have asked for a better start to their season (home runs to for all the guys and a mercy ruling in the 5th innings) the Pirates suffered an unexpected defeat from the newly promoted Base Invaders. It could have been far worse for the Pirates as after the first 4 innings … Continue reading Game 1: Parrots flourish, Pirates flounder.
With the last tournament played over the weekend the season has once again gone by in the blink of an eye. For the second year running the Pirates have secured third place again although with losses to teams such as the Heat (double loss), Raiders and especially the Voodoos we could possibly have finished in … Continue reading End of season review
