The young Rainbow Warriors beat their older Warriors Blues counterparts 6-3 whilst Cougars had a 6-2 win over an improving Knights.

Scott Hurn was in fine form for Cougars, the pitcher keeping it tight and offering the Knights little to hit,  Knights skipper Aaron Harding said.

“We couldn’t string any hits off Scott – he threw pretty good,”  Harding said.

“Craig Haestier started (pitching) for us.

“He threw pretty well considering he hadn’t played for so long.

“He retired for five or six seasons. 

“It’s good having him back. 

“He’s going to make a big difference. 

“Norvs (Simon Norvill) also smashed the ball again for us.”

Nathan Clegg and Jody Revell were other Knights’ notables.

Warriors suffered from injury and unavailability and had just 18 for both sides in their grand final replay.

Scott Deakes (left field) and Keyton Hislop (right field) were impressive in what was an “ugly game”.

The Rainbows hit the ball well, smashing 15 to the Blues’ four.

Joey Holt was outstanding with the bat for the Rainbows, coming up with three hits while Jeff Chandler backed up his four innings of relief pitching to smoke three hits as well.

John Warren pitched strongly for the Blues and Nathan Ardill also hit the ball well for the Blues.
