Wolves win one of three baseball premiership games
The Woy Woy Wolves Baseball Club had mixed results in the Central Coast Baseball Association grand finals.
In the First Grade, the Wolves were up against long time rivals the Wyong Roos.
Club president Mr Scott Murray said, despite the Wolves' best efforts, the Roos proved too strong on the day.
"The Roos pitching and left side defence was just fantastic," he said.
"Locked at three-all after eight innings, the Roos edged ahead in the ninth to stop our quest for four straight First Grade Premierships, with a final score of 5-3.
The result saw the First Grade team named Minor Premiers with the club's Nick Hickson named the Central Coast Baseball Association Pitcher of the Year.
In the Second Grade, the Wolves took the premiership with a 5-nil win over the Gosford Lions.
"We were never headed from the moment we jumped out of the blocks," Mr Murray said.
In the Third Grade, the Wyong Magpies halted the Wolves' shot at the premiership, locking down the title with an 11-5 point victory.
Third Grade players also picked up Association awards with Adam Smith named Player of the Year, with Les Smith and Troy Unsworth joint recipients of the Pitcher of the Year.
