With no games scheduled in the local competition we sent off a Cardinals U10 (Zooka) team to participate in the annual East Hills Gala Day at Milperra (Sun 29 Nov).
Four competitive games of Zooka Ball were played against quite strong Sydney based opposition. We held our own, going down in 3 matches but winning the last game.
The last game is where everything came together. Up against a strong Mets team from Macarthur whom had won their other games, the Cardinals kids played awesome. The highlight was the little dynamo, Lewis Mercieca, who smacked a home run to score 3 & eventually we ran out 7-4 winners. Things were looking a little grim when we were 4 runs down in the 2nd innings - gotta love it!
Those that are eligible are keen to participate again next year.
