Tough Win at Upwey Ferntree Gully
Round 26 Round Up
The Wolves made the long trip to Ferntree Gully on Sunday in what turned out to be very hot and draining conditions. This certainly impacted the performance of both the Firsts and Seconds but with very different end results.
The Firsts were down on man power with a late witdrawl but scored 7 runs in the first innings to put UFG on the back foot from the very beginning. In a long drawn out game (the first innings took 41 minutes) the Wolves managed to keep a cmfortable lead but couldn't quite stretch it to 10 for the early finish. Jason Lester started on the mound and was relieved by Josh Lee and then finally by Ryan Camov.
The win took our season record to 8 wins and a draw from 26 games which is roughly a 1:3 Win Loss Ratio. While not great it represents a resonable output for our first season in Division 1 for a couple of decades. Our last game for the season is a home fixture against Doncaster on Saturday Feb, 21st at 2:00pm and the Wolves will be keen to finsih the season on a win and would love to have a big crowd down at the Wolf Dome to cheer them on. Relegation while still a possibility is unlikely.
The Seconds had an absolute shocker in their last game for the season going down 1-15. At one srtage in the first innings they were down 10 runs with no outs. The boys could manage only 2 safe hits in what was their worst game for the season. The Seconds finished with 6 wins and a draw from 16 games for a winning percentage of 40. This was only 3 wins out of finals contention and when you consider the number of times the boys were in winning positions and lost this year finals could have been a possibility.
The Thirds have done a fantastic job of making the finals finishing in third position. In an odd twist the top 3 teams all had identical winning percentages of 73.53 which is an outstanding ersult for the boys. By coincidance the Thirds will be taking on Doncaster at Doncaster. The semi final is being played at Doncaster on Sunday Feb, 22nd at 2:00pm and the boys would really appreciate as much suppport as they can get.
The Masters also finished their season on Monday night with a 9-8 win over Geelong B. It was the Masters second win of the season both against Geelong B. Actually the boys from Geelong were very sporting supplying 2 players for us to even up the numbers. The boys were ecstatic to grab another win especially coming from behind as they did. Special mention goes to Paul Deterring this year for organising the team and to Stewie Cassell for being there every week to cook the BBQ for us. For the Masters to continue next season we are going to need a strong commitment from players as the boys struggled through most of the season with only 7 players.
