Finally, we saw some hitting from both of our U16 teams this week, with the State team getting the win against Preston 11-2, and the Metros going down 16-8 to Mulgrave/Bonbeach.
In State game, Aiden Flynn did it both with ball and bat, pitching 4 innings for 5Ks and 2 ERs, as well as racking up 2 hits and 2 RBIs. He was backed up with the bat by Luke Socic ( 2 hits, 4 RBIs), and Zac Skinner (2 hits, 2 RBIs) and in the field, where only 1 error was committed all day. The Royals scored in 5 of the 6 innings and Will Connolly closed the game out with 2 shut out innings.
The Metro team bats also woke up, with 8 runs off 7 hits, and 6 of the 8 players getting at least one hit, and if it wasn’t for the 7 run 2nd innings from Mulgrave, the game would have been much closer.
This week, both teams are away, with the State Team at Newport, and the Metro team at Surrey Park against Melbourne.
In other news, we have the Rockapedia night coming up on the 26th of November. We would like to get a couple of tables of U16s parents and kids together….this is a great night, so please watch out on the website over the next few days for details on how to book your tickets.
And finally, congratulations to Luke and Zac for being selected in the Victorian U16 teams. They will be heading to Sydney in January representing the Vics in the National Championships. Good Luck Guys!
