Blue Sox fight back to beat ladder leader
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.
