Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT -

THE Sydney Blue Sox en­joyed a great come­back to de­feat first-placed Can­berra Elite Cav­alry at Black­town In­ter­na­tional Sportspark in Rooty Hill over the week­end.

Af­ter strug­gling at the start of the sea­son in fifth, the Blue Sox were in for a chal­lenge against the reign­ing cham­pi­ons from the na­tion’s cap­i­tal.

How­ever, Fri­day night saw the home side take out the first game of the se­ries by a whop­ping eight runs.

De­spite a tough fight by Can­berra, the Blue Sox were also able to come from be­hind to se­cure a sec­ond win on Satur­day, tak­ing out the match, 11-7.

By the third match on Sun­day, it ap­peared Sydney’s win­ning streak couldn’t be stopped as they se­cured the se­ries, win­ning 6-1.

Blue Sox man­ager Ja­son Pospishil said the team was look­ing for­ward to the rest of the sea­son.

“Our con­fi­dence is high af­ter play­ing four really good games against the com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers,” Pospishil said.

“We have played really well at home this sea­son, and win­ning al­ways gives the team ex­tra con­fi­dence, which we look for­ward to car­ry­ing into our next se­ries v Mel­bourne.”

The last game was the cherry on the cake for the Sydney team, with an 8-2 win.

The four-game win­ning streak has seen Sydney rise to third place on the lad­der.
