Round 1:
On a nice but very windy day we took part in this charity blitz for the first time. 8 teams took part. 2 groups of 4 team played a round robin for the first round. First game got out of the blocks pretty well against the Renegades winning easily. Next up Marlay, very tight defense from Marlay never let us into this game. Next the local team the Bearcats, couldn't get to grips with the strong wind against the bats in this game, although we defended pretty well , just didn't get enough hits. This left us 3rd in group and into plate semi finals.

Tribes 10 v 4 Renegades
Tribes 3 v 13 Marlay
Tribes 2 v 8 Bearcats

Group A Standings:

Team W L %
Marlay 3 0 1.000
Bearcats 2 1 0.666
Tribes 1 2 0.333
Renegades 0 3 0.000

Plate Semi Final:
Here we played against the bottom team from group B, Belfast Aviators. The batting in this game really came together and could have won by a lot more if we had more people on base when the home runs came in (5 altogether in this game). So into another Plate final in Castleknock.

Tribes 10 v 5 Belfast Aviators

Plate Final
This was to be against the Renegades who we had already beaten earlier. Much different game here, close all the way through with little to separate us. After last inning the game was tied 7-7. so we played an extra inning. Top of the inning Renegades batting and we got 3 outs pretty quickly with no runs scored. So jus t1 run needed to win. Good start with first 2 batters with base hits, so runners on 1 and 2 with no outs. Next batter also a base hit but an overthrow at 3rd meant the runners advanced giving us the run we needed.

Well done to all who took part.

Also Sluggers won the Cup, they remained undefeated throughout the day. We had a small part to play in this to, David playing for them in semi-final as they were short.

Tribes 8 v 7 Renegades
