It was a real close fight for Flamestorm against the Twitter T-Birds…

This fast and furious encounter began with Flamestorm in the field whilst Twitter pulled out and early lead 3 – 0 in the 1st. We got our first runs courtesy of Matt, Jakub and Brooke in the 2nd but were still three behind going into the 3rd inning.

In the 4th we managed to pull things back, holding the T-Birds to one and responding with three. It was nip and tuck all the way with the innings falling away and suddenly it was the bottom of the 7th. Having just shut out our opponents we were in need of six runs for the win…

Having got four around with one out, the tension was mounting and both teams knew it was time to up their game. Another out and bases loaded we needed ONE RUN for the tie… Alas. Final score: Flamestorm 10 – 11 T-Birds

Another fantastic performance against a very evenly matched team. Shutting out a team of this calibre is no small feat and our fielding showed real strength to keep this within reach. MVP: Jordan Wilson, for a great catch and a fearless home run.
