Vikings Juniors - Weekend "Round Up"(12 Nov)

A great weekend for Vikings with four of our five Junior teams getting a win!!! (and five of our six senior teams scoring wins over the Bears)

Now for the “Junior Wrap”, this week we start with our u9’s who had an impressive win on the weekend 28-16 against the Bear Black side. The team continues to improve each week in both batting and fielding to record consecutive wins. A special thanks to Sam H, Hamish and Bentley for backing up from their U7’s game and helping out. They did their U7 coach proud. The spirit award went to Aiden Smith who took his first catch for the season, caught the ball well at first base and continues to improve with his batting.

The u11’s had a great day out winning 9-7. Coach Mac and Coach Simon were impressed by the teams batting & fielding and are pleased that the hard work being put into practice is starting to pay off on game day. The team has a number of first time players and its great to see the level of improvement from the beginning of the season.

U13s won 23-4 off the back of some good pitching from Hector. All players did really well at the plate and everyone had a hit or a walk. Well done to Ethan who received the game ball for his efforts of 4 hits from 4 appearances at the plate – his first bunch of 4 hits.

U15s had a tough day on the diamond to record a 21-0 loss to the Bears. A promising start by Jeye Turner on the mound despite best efforts, wasn’t backed up in the field. What could have been a 1-0 score after two innings turned into the team being behind12-0. The lesson learned this week was that you have to back up your pitchers by playing catch well otherwise the down side is you don’t get a lot of at bats. The team will regroup at practice and prepare to take on the Rebels on Wednesday. Player of the day went to Flynn O'Connor for his diligent backing up and relay throws throughout the game and his quality at bat. First season player Ryan Jones continue to improve in his infield play and catchers Corey Foley and Aaron Kon worked hard and did good jobs behind the dish. 

The u7's continue to play better each week and scored plenty of runs to win on Saturday. Coach Jeremy is enjoying coaching the kids and is loving the enthusiasm being shown by his players and parents.

Have a great week!

Erni, Club Coach
