One day after the Queen’s College Comets boys won the Bahamas Association of Independent Secondary Schools (BAISS) junior boys title, their senior boys team roared back in the final inning to defeat the St. Augustine’s College (SAC) Big Red Machine 13-12 to sweep them 2-0 in their best-of-three championship series at Queen’s College yesterday afternoon.
In junior girls action, the C.W
Saunders Cougars made light work of the Big Red Machine to win 11-3 to lift the BAISS junior girls trophy at SAC’s home field.
Comets 13, SAC 12
Heading into the bottom of the fifth inning, the Big Red Machine was up 12-11 to set the way for a dramatic finish for the Comets.
The Comets needed two more runs to score in the bottom of the fifth inning. It worked out for the Comets that their top order of the batting line up was up next.
The tying run came home when second baseman Nathaniel Zerab came home. Their next batter was the second out of the inning for them.
Heading to the batter’s box was pitcher Sean Rolle. He was able to get on base as the Comets only needed to bring him home.
At the batter’s box was third baseman Nicolas Zervous. He was able to get a hit to the right field to bring home Rolle as the Comets won 13-12 and claimed the championship.
It brought an end to an exciting senior boys championship as SAC tried to get the best of the Comets.
The winning pitcher was Rolle. SAC’s Otto Laing was tagged as the losing pitcher.
Cougars 11, SAC 3
The Cougars poured in five runs at the top of the third inning to pull out an 11-3 championship clinching performance.
They had three batters who scored in double figures.
The Big Red Machine was unable to score multiple runs in an inning as their bats were flat.
The winning pitcher was the Cougars’ Dorinda Knowles. SAC’s Niekeisha Saunders was the losing pitcher.
The final BAISS championship game is set for today at 3.30 pm at Banker’s Field. That game will feature the senior girls match between the St. John’s College Giants and the Big Red Machine. That series is tied 1-1.
