Waverley and Dandenong have completed hard fought victories in the Cup competitions to take out Victoria’s most prestigious events in Albury this afternoon.
The Waverley women dominated their final against a strong Dandenong outfit that fought hard all match, eventually winning 13 – 3 in stifling heat. Pitcher Dale Stocker once again lead from the front for Waverley, and along with Sam Allan ensured a comfortable victory.
The Men’s Cup Grand Final was a nail biter with Dandenong closing out the match to win 6 – 5; Adam Jansen kept his cool to deliver when it mattered most from the mound in the final inning. In a fierce contest between two high quality teams, it was Geelong who gained an early lead before being pegged back late, an all-round team performance from Dandenong securing a memorable win.
In the Women’s Plate Grand Final, a Knox team lead by Titans Coach Mark Rigg, and with a blend of experience and youth prevailed against Geelong 11 – 6 whilst in the Men’s Plate Grand Final, Casey proved too strong Albury Wodonga 11 – 0.
