In the first of the day’s matches on Sunday, the DMS Jersey Flyers took on the re-vamped Tigers in a division 2 clash. Quick to take an early lead in the first 2 innings, the Flyers worked through their batting order to secure themselves 8 runs whilst simultaneously shutting out the Tigers to prevent them from getting on the scoreboard. However the Tigers, who were down a player, launched an attack in the third innings, shutting out the Flyers by claiming 3 outs for 3 batters and then going on to score 2 runs of their own. The Flyers re-grouped in the 4th and 5th innings, scoring a further 4 runs, including home-runs from Chris Le Lion and Sharon McGrath. With their opponent’s defences proving to be impenetrable, notably the Flyers left-fielder, James Marshall, who took two impressive catches in a row, the Tigers struggled to score any further runs. As the umpire called ball-game at the end of the 7th innings, the final score swung in the DMS Jersey Flyers favour, 14-2.
The Dominion Niners then took on Jacksons Phoenix for the only division 1 game of the day. The Niners took an early lead and showed their experience and knowledge of the game, whilst Phoenix battled hard to prove their place in the division. Final score 28-9 to the Dominion Niners.
In the late afternoon, Corefocus Cubs took on newcomers Jacksons Eagles. With some experience in their ranks, the Eagles fought hard against the seasoned Cubs, however they were unable to contain the ever growing score. The final total came in 47-3 in the Cubs favour.
