Cup Report

The First Round of the Cup, played in June featured a cracking match between Usual Suspects and Mockingbirds, with excellent batting by Sam Robinson and Martha McGrath setting the pace for the Suspects. Mockingbirds had to wait for the 5th Inning before retaliating with a great Home Run by Eoin Lyons. Suspects responded well with superb hitting from Adrian Forster and Dave Killian to take the game 14-12.

The big hitters of Dodder Dynamoes, Marlay Martyrs and Batpak entered in the Second Round, and also comfortably won their Last 16 games, along with Oddsox Red, 1Z Blazers, Loan Homers Barney and Y2 Kegs who received walkovers, and Renegades who had a close 12-8 win over Sluggers.

The Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals were held at Aer Lingus Sports and Athletic Association at Dublin Airport. There the Dynamoes and Martyrs met in a low-scoring affair with Dodder’s 9 players managing to shutout Marlay to take the game 4-0, before a comfortable 14-4 victory over Oddsox Red. In the other half of the draw, Loan Homers Barney chalked up wins over Slammers and Renegades to reach the Final.

The Cup Final was won by Dodder Dynamoes for the second year in-a-row with an relatively easy 19-5 win over Loan Homers Barney.

Plate Report

The Plate Renegades 2, Shutout 7 and Kiely’s Kegs had an easy time reaching the Semi-Finals, although the Kegs were pushed all the way by All Sinners who had reached their first ever Quarter-Final. The Kegs then smashed the Bray Allsorts 97 28-11 with some excellent batting and very aggressive base running, and in the other Semi-Final Renegades 2 beat Shutout 7.

The Final, then, was between two well-matched teams, who went to the 11th inning before Kiely’s Kegs won out 18-17 with their superior hitting and possible experience giving them the title after the two teams traded runs and home runs for hours.
