Dazzlers 7 @ Suede 14 - Report

Dazzlers 4 0 1 0 2 0 0 = 7
Italian S  0 2 0 1 9 2 x = 14

It was all looking so good. Middle of 5, Dazzlers leading 7 to 3, defence looking hot...
Then, bam, a monster 9-run inning for the Suede and it was all over bar the ice packs.
Can't win em all I suppose but that first Road win of the season sure would be nice. We'll take this one on the chin though.

In truth, on the night the Dazzlers batting never really got going to anywhere near the giddy levels of last week, and we got out of a couple of scrapes in earlier innings when fielding, Suede leaving countless stranded on base, in what is fast becoming our trademark Emergency Hold!
We again showed we are definitely playing at the right level with some canny play, albeit against very solid teams. But as the season progresses and with a couple more practices hopefully over the next 2-3 weekends (watch this space) we can only get better.

Hats off to the Dazzlers too, pretty much everyone came to the pub after (and the Red Lion did not disappoint!) where we nursed injuries and pride in equal measure as our next victory was plotted!
