Seriously challenged by a combative Bellarine Bears, Guild again produced the offensive goods when it mattered most – in so doing landing its fourth A Grade pennant on the trot with a 6-2 win in beautiful conditions at Geelong Baseball Centre this afternoon.
The win completed a senior quinella for the Guild club, which smashed Mounties 12-0 for the A Reserve title, while Colac continued its run of success in the lower grades with an imperious 16-1 shellacking of Saints in B Grade and a hard-fought 10-7 result over Lara Wildcats in B Reserve.
Chasing their fourth A Grade premiership on the trot, Guild Lions will lock horns with a resurgent and in-form Bellarine Bears in what shapes as a massive day of senior Grand Finals at Geelong Baseball Centre on Saturday 30 August....
Congratulations to the premier teams in GBA junior competition for 2014.
