Pi­rates 2 and Cougars were com­pletely shut out in the first and sec­ond in­nings. The first scores came from Cougars who brought in five run­ners, un­matched by Pi­rates who brought in three.

Cougars looked set to win the match in the sev­enth, hav­ing a four-run lead over Pi­rates, but were taken by sur­prise as Pi­rates found their in­ner fire to com­pletely shut out Cougars, and bring in six run­ners to claim the vic­tory and the chance to play in the grand fi­nal.

In the A-grade, Pi­rates earned two runs to Jets’ sin­gle in the first in­ning and then three runs in the sec­ond, while keep­ing Jets to nil.

This pat­tern was re­peated in the third and fourth in­ning, with Pi­rates hav­ing a lead of eight runs.

The fi­nal blow was dealt in the sixth in­ning with Pi­rates shut­ting down Jets while earn­ing an­other four runs to bring the mar­gin to 11.

The A-re­serve grand fi­nal will pit Raiders 2 against Pi­rates 2 at 1pm on Satur­day.

In the A-grade, Raiders and Pi­rates face-off again at 3pm.
