It was a high scoring round of matches in the Pony division as teams jostled for playoff standings.
All of the teams showed there was no giving up last Saturday as regular season games came to an end in the Cayman Islands Little League Association 2013 season.
Conyers continued their quest for an unbeaten season with a hard fought 13-12 win over a strong Logic team at the Field of Dreams facility in George Town. Conyers had overall strong batting and tried to keep Logic’s hard hitting batters to as few runs as possible with good defensive decisions.
Great hitting and base running by Lindsay Bodden was key to Conyers success. Birthday boy Nikolai Christian was strong at the plate as well and the whole Conyers team did their part defensively. It was Luke Atkinson’s base hit in the final inning that drove home speedy Andrea Tognazzo to secure the win for Conyers.
Logic will hope to take revenge on Conyers this coming Saturday in the final regular season game before the playoffs. It was a spirited effort by Team Logic who have struggled a bit this season but have gradually improved and pushed the leaders very hard.
A strong Kirk Freeport team dominated Appleby 13-4 with excellent hitting after taking a 6-4 lead in the first inning. Even with the return of hard hitting Jaeden Miller, the Appleby bats never seemed to catch fire as they remained scoreless in the second and third innings. Appleby left runners stranded on base in both innings with Kirk cruising to seven more runs in the second inning.
HSBC maintained their third place spot with a 16-13 win over Coldwell Banker. It was a strong overall batting performance by the HSBC hitters with everyone getting a hit. Leadoff hitter Stephanie Menko went 3-for-3 and also scored three runs.
But it wasn’t done there – Brandon Eden, Nathaniel Roberts, Alejandro Holness and Jaidaun Narcisse all had two or more hits and scored each time they got on. But the day belonged to slugger Jaeden Pouchie, who went 3-for-3 with three home runs and seven runs batted in and was easily HSBC’s player of the game.
As a result, Conyers coasted to the regular season crown at 8-0-1. Kirk Freeport, 5-3-1 and HSBC, 4-3-2, were the other two winning teams. The rest of the standings feature 3-6 Coldwell Banker, 2-5-2 Appleby and 2-7 team Logic.
