Thursday 19th May saw Crayon Swingers continue their winning softball ways with Paul Jacobs scoring a home-run hat-trick as the team made their way to an emphatic 23-3 win over Tribal Fusion.
Joined by even more new faces, the Swingers edged ahead through the early innings with disciplined team performance. The fielding, tight throughout the match, left the Fireflies struggling to reply as they fell to catches by Woods, Jacobs and Needham. Hamilton followed his Man Of The Match performance from last week with another strong display, forcing a number of crucial strikeouts.
Jacobs, joined by Adam Lowe and Gaurav Jassal on the home-run list, extended the lead to 12-6 at the bottom of the 6th. It was then that Crayon really hit their stride, scoring 14 in just the one innings to put the match truly beyond sight.
Captain Emily Churches commented “This was a sensational match with every team member contributing to the Swinger’s Triumphant win. Special mention also goes to Jon Womble The Bromble on his impeccable Umpiring. Thanks For giving your game up.”
